Beck has offered fans a glimpse of the future today in the form of “Saw Lightning,” a stunning new track featuring Beck’s unmistakable raw acoustic slide guitar and harmonica playing. “Saw Lightning” was written and produced by Beck and Pharrell Williams, who contributes drums, keyboards and mumbles.
“Saw Lightning” is available both as a single and as the perfect music to power the new Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats Pro campaign, a high-energy film directed by Grammy Award-winning filmmaker Hiro Murai (Chilidish Gambino).
“Saw Lightning” is the first track to be released from Beck’s forthcoming Hyperspace, to released via Capitol Records at an as yet undetermined point in the space time continuum. In the meantime, Beck fans can tide themselves over with his already prolific 2019 output, including “Tarantula” from Music Inspired by ROMA, “Super Cool” (featuring Robyn & The Lonely Island) from The LEGO Movie 2, and most recently his feature appearance on Cage The Elephant’s “Night Running.”
Hyperspace will be Beck’s 14th album, following 2017’s Colors, which won Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical at the 61st GRAMMY Awards earlier this year.
