Genre spanning psychedelic folkster Beck, has announced that he will be reissuing a large portion of his discography on vinyl. Beck’s career in music began in 1993, when he released his debut album ‘Golden Feelings’. He has since gone onto to release a further eleven studio records.
The singer has revealed that he will be reissuing every one of his albums on vinyl record, except for 2014’s ‘Morning Phase’. ‘Morning Phase’ brought with it somewhat of a resurgence in popularity for Beck, and charted highly in both the US and UK. Beck eventually won three Grammy Awards for the record including ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Rock Album’.
The first set of reissues will be made available on October 28, and will include Beck’s 2005 album ‘Guero’, his 2002 album ‘Sea Change’ and his hugely influential 1996 album ‘Odelay’.
‘Odelay’ is perhaps Beck’s most well known record and signalled a defining moment in his career. The record, which contains the hits ‘Where It’s At’ and ‘Devils Haircut’ has since been certified platinum in the UK, US and Canada
The next lot of albums to be reissued include ‘Mutations’, ‘Mellow Gold’, Modern Guilt’ and ‘Midnight Vultures’ however, there is yet to be a confirmed release date.
Beck’s most recent track ‘Wow’ dropped on June 2 of this year, and follows last years stand alone release ‘Dreams’. Beck seems to be playing his cards very close to his chest with regards to his upcoming album, yet it has been all but confirmed that both of these tracks will feature on it.
When questioned about the album, Beck stated: “This record has felt like a lot of freedom, as I’ve had time to work things out and try things. I’ll go too far in one direction, then go too far in another. There were a few other ideas that have come out of making this record that are interesting and have pushed me in other directions.”
