Alternative hero Beck has announced the upcoming release of his new album Hyperspace, accompanied by the release of a brand new single ‘Saw Lightning’.

The track is an eclectic, percussive-heavy alt-pop ditty riddled with melancholic harmonica and schizophrenic lyricism – another incredible addition to Beck’s extensive back catalogue of experimental jams.

Co-produced by Pharrell, who also contributed drums and mumbles, the track sets a seriously hyper-energetic tone and will satiate the hunger of any Beck fanatic in the lead up to the album release.

Hyperspace will mark Beck’s 14th album release, following the success of his Grammy-winning 2017 record Colours. 

No release date is set yet however, you can expect it to arrive at “some point in the space-time continuum”, according to Capitol Records – would you expect anything less from the mastermind?

Beck has already had a busy 2019, releasing ‘Tarantula’ as part of the soundtrack for the award-winning film ROMA, as well as ‘Super Cool’, featuring Robyn and the Lonely Island for The Lego Movie 2. He also recently made a guest appearance on the Cage The Elephant track ‘Night Running’.

Beck was last in the country as part of the inaugural Sydney City Limits festival last year, playing a run of intimate shows around the country including a special surprise show in Sydney.
