When I picked The Tune Up song for this week, I giggled knowing I could name my post “Who is Beck?” – I just couldn’t resist after how much I enjoyed the worldwide hashtag the night of the 2015 GRAMMYs. Well, if that didn’t get people knowing exactly who Beck is, I have a feeling his newest song might.
After ominously hinting at new music on social media this past week, Beck dropped a surprise song at midnight. Being the first single from his upcoming new album, “Dreams” quickly began getting buzz from both fans and critics alike.
Don’t expect a song that’s reminiscent of Album of the Year winning Morning Phase. You can tell Beck has moved on from the folksy, early morning sunrise reflection music. Now, “Dreams” is a dance all night and party all day kind of jam. It’s back to the fun roots of what made Beck and his not so serious music popular to begin with.
Yes, my friends it’s poppy and refreshing. The combination of amped electric guitar and falsetto keeps the energy in “Dreams” rolling around.
I am in love with this song and happy to see another side of Beck again. If “Dreams” doesn’t propel into the front running for song of summer I don’t know what to tell you. It’s perfect. Windows down, sun on your face…and all good vibes. What more do you need?
What is your favorite song of Beck’s?
