Beck Eyeing Fall For Next Album
Beck has finished recording his next studio album and will release it this fall via Interscope. While there is no official street date for the as-yet-untitled effort, it comes only a year-and-a-half after his last full-length set, “Guero,” hit stores.
According to Beck’s Web site, the new album was produced by Nigel Godrich, who has been behind the boards for such prior releases as 1998’s “Mutations” and 2002’s “Sea Change.”
Beck will be previewing new material this month during a 10-date North American tour, which also visits Tennessee’s Bonnaroo festival. In August, he will hit the European festival circuit and open two dates for Radiohead in Edinburgh and Dublin.
“Guero” gave Beck the highest chart position in his career when it opened at No. 2 on The Billboard 200. It has sold 800,000 copies in United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
