New Beck

I can safely say that this is one of my most anticipated albums coming up this year. I have always been a Beck fan and was curious when I heard that none other than Danger Mouse (has Jay-Z's Grey Album been that long) was producing his upcoming release. If his production on the Black Keys new album is any indication of what he has in store for Beck I can't wait. Here is the track listing for Modern Guilt. One of the first singles leaked Chemtrails gives us a glimpse of where Beck wants to take us on his journey. With spacey, surreal like sounds it makes you want to drink a glass of absinthe and just go to a place you have never been to. (wow did i just say that).
