It's been a busy week for Beck. Yesterday his new Jack White-produced track 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today' was unveiled online. The single was released on Monday (May 28) on White's Third Man Records label along with a new B-Side 'Blue Randy'.

The two tracks were recorded last year at the Third Man Studio in Nashville when Beck was in the Tennessee city recording the follow-up to 2008's 'Modern Guilt'. Beck joins the likes of Tom Jones, Laura Marling and Insane Clown Posse in recording and releasing one-off singles on White's Third Man Records.

The singer has not released any details about the follow-up to 'Modern Guilt', with the only postings about the album coming from bass player Justin Meldal-Johnsen, who tweeted that Beck's new material "would blow your mind".
