In November 2019 Beck released his fourteenth studio album, Hyperspace. The album was co-produced by Pharrell Williams who shared song writing credits on most of the tracks. Here is an entertaining rendition of “Uneventful Days” from an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel in December. Prescient lyrics. And the set starts out looking like a bad home office fading into one of those Zoom virtual backgrounds.
Earlier in 2019 Cage the Elephant released their fifth album, Social Cues, and took home their second Rock Album of the Year award at the 2020 Grammy’s. Here’a the psychedelic video for the title track. I’m not sure what happens if you text the phone number.
Beck appeared as co-lead singer on “Night Running” from Social Cues. The song gave its name to the 2019 concert tour Beck and Cage the Elephant co-headlined.
If you feel like watching a couple more videos, definitely check out the career-launching songs of Beck, “Loser”, and Cage “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”. You’ll see why Cage’s lead singer Matt Schultz said, “Beck’s tunes have helped shape my life and musical palette.”
