A new Beck song has surfaced on the internet following an exclusive airing on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show last night.
‘Chemtrails’ is the first track to be heard from Beck’s forthcoming LP which is being produced by Danger Mouse and scheduled for an early summer release.
It’s a far cry from the old-skool persona in evidence on 2006’s Nigel Godrich-produced The Information; all spectral shoegaze atmospherics and Mr Hansen’s haunted choirboy moan – anyone expecting the post-modern trouser fixations of yore should look away now, the lyrics are barely discernible. Only the louche bass line betrays his slacker-funk roots; in terms of tone this is weirdly reminiscent of Caribou’s melancholy psych or even late-period Blonde Redhead.
