Beck to release new album Morning Phase in February

Beck has announced plans to release his new album Morning Phase in February 2014.

He has signed a new deal with Capitol Records and will release his 12th album with the label early next year. Morning Phase is Beck's first album in six years, coming after Modern Guilt in 2008. The album is described as being a "companion piece" to the largely acoustic Sea Change, released in 2002, and will include a number of guest stars.

Confirmed names set to appear on Morning Phase include Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr, and Jason Falkner. A press release comparing the album to Sea Change discusses how it, "harkens back to the stunning harmonies, songcraft and staggering emotional impact of that record, while surging forward with infectious optimism".
