Hints At A New Album

So it does appear that Beck is hard at work at a new album. A recent Rolling Stone article about Odeluxe mentions that he is recording in L.A. with a producer he declines to name. Beck assured that it will be out this year.

Spin Magazine “reports” in one sentence that Beck is back to work with Nigel Godrich, which sounds possible. But then JMJ, Beck’s bassist/musical director, added to the mystery that Beck is working with someone JMJ set him up with, so I read that as someone new. (“And it’s going well,” he added.)

So… this is a report that there isn’t a lot to report, and what little there is to report isn’t quite solid info. I feel like a real member of the media.

    Whoever produces it, it will surely be fantastic.

    This is a shot in the dark, but what isn’t with this much information? Jack White has produced one album that I’m aware of (Loretta Lynn’s “Van Lear Rose”). I don’t know the circumstances surrounding Beck’s most recent work with the White Stripes, the three “Conquest” B-sides, other than it was recorded in Beck’s living room. The White Stripes, driven by Jack, are known for the brief amount of time it takes them to complete their albums. This guess is, of course, ruling out Nigel Godrich as “the producer.”

    yeah I was thinking it could be Jack White, he’s produced more than just “Van Lear Rose”, i think its about 4 or 5 albums, but if it is him im sure it will be great.

    Urb just reported DANGER MOUSE as the new Beck producer.


    I like the Jack White idea better.

  8. Danger Mouse is fine with me! I enjoyed his work on Demon Days — I think he and Beck could be a unique fit :)
