The new album isn't due out for another week, though NPR is streaming the full album for free on their website. Stream the full album Most music streaming apps are including 3 of the 13 tracks currently. I'm a huge fan of Beck, so I'm thrilled because it's been about 5 years since his last major release. The NPR article mentions the reason for his break from making major records and beautifully deconstructs Beck's newest work of art. Most of the CD is like a religious experience. My favorite songs are Waves, Blue Moon, and Turn Away. Many are drawing comparisons to Sea Change, but this one is definitely a world of its own. By the way, Beck is also slated to perform on SNL March 1st. I'm stoked
