Information


Beck has travelled light years from being pegged as a reluctant generational spokesperson when “Loser” metamorphosed from a rejected demo to a ubiquitous smash. Instead, he wound up crystallising much of the post-modern ruckus of the ‘90s alternative explosion, but in his own unpredictable manner: Beck's singular career has been one that's seen him utilise all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and blazing a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past.

The children have spoken: “WOW," the latest new taste from Beck’s forthcoming opus, was unveiled to the world June 2, 2016 in all its fluorescent mutant hip-hop glory. And accompanying the retro-futuristic earworm was a virtual “WOW” world built with the help of a global collective of creators on Instagram. Beck fans were first tipped off that something “WOW” was coming their way when a clip on the official @beck Instagram rallied them to GIDDY UP. The following day creators and artists from the Instagram community uploaded their unique interpretations of “WOW,” each with an exclusive clip of the song. More than 6 million viewers would check out clips tagged #beckWOW, which are still being shared on Beck.com.
