Beck Signs With EMI For New Album

After six long years, the normally prolific Beck finally has a new label.

The singer has signed with Capitol Records for his first album in six years. The new studio effort, set for February, will be called Morning Phase and will be his first since 2008’s Modern Guilt.

Between his debut with 1993’s Golden Feelings and Guilt, Beck had released 11 studio albums so a break of six years was highly unusual; however, he stayed busy as a producer (Charlotte Gainsbourg, Thurston Moore), founded Music Club where an artist would record a cover of a full classic album in a single day, and wrote for films and other artists. In late-2012, he started the Song Reader project where he published the sheet music to twenty new songs in hopes that other artists might pick them up and record them.

It was reported over the summer that he was working on two albums that he was going to release independently, one acoustic and one as more of in the stile of Modern Guilt, but early publicity on his Capitol album calls it a spiritual successor to Sea Change, even including most of the musicians from that 2002 release.
