Beck has shared a lyric video for a widescreen sounding new song, "Dear Life." He has also confirmed the release date, cover art, and tracklist for his new album, Colors. Colors is due out October 13 via Capitol. Check out the lyric video, cover art, and tracklist below, followed by his upcoming tour dates.

Greg Kurstin and Beck produced Colors, with the exception of previous single "Wow," which was produced by Beck and Cole M.G.N., and "Fix Me," which was produced by Beck. Serban Ghenea mixed the album, except for "Dreams" and "Up All Night," which were mixed by Greg Kurstin and Beck. Jimmy Turrell, Laura Gorun, and Brook Linder all directed the colorful "Dear Life" lyric video, which features animation by Drew Tyndell and Rhiannon Tyndell.

In June 2016 Beck released a brand new song, "Wow," and announced plans to release an as yet to be titled new album sometime via Capitol (it was originally due out last October, but was pushed back to a TBA date). In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this month Beck announced the album's title and release month. "I suppose the record could have come out a year or two ago," Beck said to Rolling Stone's Andy Greene. "But these are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once. It's not retro and not modern. To get everything to sit together so it doesn't sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking."

"Wow" followed "Dreams," a standalone single that was released in 2015, and "Wow" matches that track's poppy vibe, sounding more like something from his great 1999 album Midnight Vultures rather than his last album, 2014's more subdued Morning Phase, which won the Grammy for Album of the Year. "Dreams" is featured on Colors but in a new mix.
