Beck has dropped “Saw Lightning,” a collaboration with superproducer Pharrell. It’s the first track to arrive from the art rocker’s forthcoming album, Hyperspace.
“Saw Lightning” pairs Beck’s acoustic slide guitar and harmonica with Pharrell’s unmistakable drums and percussion (he’s also credited on keyboards and “mumbles” in the background). It’s a catchy, adventurous track that bodes well for the new album, which will be Beck’s 14th.
There’s no confirmed release date for Hyperspace at present. The album will arrive, a statement says, “at an as yet undetermined point in the space-time continuum.”
