Beck has shared a video for a brand new song, “Up All Night.” It’s the latest song to be taken from his forthcoming new album, Colors, which is due out October 13 via Capitol. Canada directed the video, which features a female warrior in armor and with a shield, as she literally crashes a party. The press release describes the video as such: “‘Up All Night’ tracks its fearless heroine (Solene Rigot) through an increasingly bizarre series of trials as she races against the sun-and at times the very rules of reality-to rescue a fallen friend (Pedro Attenborough).” An earlier version of the song appeared on the EA Sports FIFA 17 soundtrack. “Up All Night” follows another recent Colors track, “Dear Life,” which was shared via a lyric video. Watch the “Up All Night” video 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 last 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.
