In the same interview, he also discussed Colors' turbulent recording process, which led to its lengthy delay, saying, "these are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once".

In June 2016 Beck released a brand new song, "Wow", and announced plans to release an as yet to be titled new album sometime via Capitol (it was originally due out last October, but was pushed back to a TBA date). "To get everything to sit together so it doesn't sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking".

The long-teased follow-up to 2014's Grammy Album of the Year-winning Morning Phase is called Colors, and will finally arrive in October, reports Rolling Stone.

For the new album, Beck worked with producer Greg Kurstin. But he got an early break as Beck's touring keyboardist on 2002's Sea Change tour, and he was happy to reunite with his old friend. In some cases, that efficiency was needed since Kurstin's busy schedule meant working with several artists at once. The pair recorded Colors, reported to be "relentlessly upbeat" and reflective of Beck's marriage to Marissa Ribisi and fatherhood, in Kurstin's home in Los Angeles. "It doesn't matter if it's Beethoven or the Monkees". Confirmed track titles include "Fix Me" and "Up All Night".

As to the time it took to make the album and his prevalence in the music community, he commented, "I've always been doing my thing", he says.

Beck will hit the road for a short run of shows this next week. His Album of the Year victory aside, Beck has generally been comfortable existing slightly outside the mainstream.
