BECK — Uneventful Days (St. Vincent Remix)
BECK — No Distraction (Khruangbin Remix)
RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE
DOUBLE A~SIDE VINYL SINGLE
Album release: April 18, 2020
•⊆⊇• To commemorate Record Store Day 2020 on April 18, Beck will be releasing a limited edition double~A side 7” vinyl single featuring singular interpretations of two beloved songs from the seven~time GRAMMY~winner’s lauded catalogue:
•⊆⊇• The first or second of the two A~sides (listener’s choice) is the first vinyl issue of St. Vincent’s remix of “Uneventful Days” a/k/a “quite possibly the best song Beck has made since Morning Phase” (STEREOGUM) from Beck’s current album Hyperspace a/k/a “his best in a decade” (PEOPLE), a reinterpretation that features St. Vincent on guitar, bass and keys in addition to her remixing duties.
•⊆⊇• The other first or second A~side (again, depending on your choice) is Khruangbin’s remix of “No Distraction.” Slated for digital release the day before, the RSD 7” will be the vinyl debut of the Houston TX trio’s reconstruction of the deep cut from Beck’s Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album, Non~Classical GRAMMY~winning 2017 album Colors.
•⊆⊇• Released November 22, 2019 on Capitol Records, Beck’s current album Hyperspace has been uniformly hailed as yet another creative peak. The ASSOCIATED PRESS raved “There is not a boring moment on the entire album,” USA TODAY added “nearly 30 years and 14 albums into his career, Beck has rarely been better than he is on Hyperspace,” while David Fricke of ROLLING STONE’s 4~star lead review likened Beck’s voice on “Uneventful Days” to “David Bowie’s Major Tom checking in from distant orbit.”
•⊆⊇• Beck is set to spend a good deal of 2020 touring Hyperspace. His current road regimen kicks off next month at Pharrell Williams’ Something In The Water festival before spending the bulk of the summer in Europe and the UK — where a second night at London’s O2 Academy Brixton was recently added due to popular demand.
