Beck will release a new record, Morning Phase, in February of next year. The record marks the singerā€™s first for Capitol Records and is said to be a ā€œcompanion piece of sortsā€ to Beckā€™s excellent 2002 record, Sea Change. Made with the same band featured on that recordā€”Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falknerā€”Morning Phase reportedly attempts to recapture the harmonies and emotions from Sea Change, while sunning up the joint with some additional optimism.

News of the record comes after a busy year for Beck. Last December, he released Song Reader, a sheet music compilation of 20 new tracks. Heā€™s also spent part of 2013 recreating David Bowieā€™s ā€œSound + Visionā€ with a 160-piece orchestra and touring a couple of train stations with Doug Aitkenā€™s Station To Station series of shows.
