2. Beck wrote songs for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

3. Beck signed to Capitol Records and released his highly anticipated album, Morning Phase

In October 2013, Beck signed to Capitol Records, releasing the highly anticipated twelfth studio album Morning Phase in February 2014. Morning Phase is said to be a “companion piece” to Beck’s 2002 album Sea Change.

Many of the musicians who recorded parts for Sea Change returned to record for Morning Phase, including Beck’s father David Campbell, who contributed orchestral arrangements for the album.

4. A Killer Year of Awards for Beck

Way to go Beck! After the release of Morning Phase, the album received critical acclaim and was nominated for five awards at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, held on February 18th, 2015. Of the five nominations, Beck won three, including Album of the Year, Best Engineered Album Non-Classical, and Best Rock Album. Considering that he hadn’t won a grammy for fifteen years, winning three that night was definitely a triumph!

8. Beck released a single from his not-yet-announced upcoming album

On June 15, 2015, Beck released his first single, “Dreams,” off of his upcoming thirteenth studio album. The song, which is  more upbeat and lively than songs from his last album, Morning Phase, was written because Beck was “….trying to make something that would be good to play live.” Additionally, the song was confirmed by developers at EA Sport to appear on popular soccer game FIFA 16!
