Hear new Beck song, "Blue Moon"

Beck has previewed a new song called "Blue Moon" – listen to it below.

The song is taken from forthcoming album Morning Phase, which is due for release on February 24.

Speaking about Morning Phase in the 2014 Album Preview in the current issue of Uncut, Beck said: "I set out to make a gritty king of record, along the lines of those early '70s singer-songwriter records. But the songs ended up having another quality to them. There are harmonies there: Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Everly Brothers, The Stanley Brothers. The Mamas & The Papas, even."

Morning Phase is Beck's first album in six years, coming after Modern Guilt in 2008.

The Morning Phase tracklisting is:

'Morning'
'Heart Is A Drum'
'Say Goodbye'
'Waking Light'
'Unforgiven'
'Wave'
'Don't Let It Go'
'Blackbird Chain'
'Evil Things'
'Blue Moon'
'Turn Away'
'Country Down'
