Beck Morning Phase On Track For UK No 1

Beck is expected to score his first-ever number one album in the UK next week.

With his highly-acclaimed new album ‘Morning Phase’ sitting at No.1 in the midweek album charts, Beck is currently on course to score his first ever No.1 album in the UK, 21 years after releasing his debut record, ‘Golden Feelings’.

His first studio album in six years, ‘Morning Phase’ has garnered wide-spread critical acclaim. The Times described the record as “a work of art” , The Sun called it “a masterpiece”, The Guardian heralded it as “some of his best music” and The New Yorker suggested that “you don’t get many albums like this in your lifetime”.

In an illustrious career spanning 12 albums, Beck’s highest UK album chart position to date is No.9 with his 2008 album ‘Modern Guilt’. ‘Morning Phase’ is his first record to be released on Virgin EMI in the UK and Capitol Records in the US.

‘Morning Phase’, has been described as a companion piece of sorts to Beck’s 2002 classic ‘Sea Change’. Featuring many of the same musicians who played on that record (who are also currently accompanying him live) – Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falkner – ‘Morning Phase’ harkens back to the stunning harmonies, song craft and staggering emotional impact of that record, while surging forward with infectious optimism.
