Beck released a new album, Colors, last October via Capitol. Last night he stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform two songs from it, “Colors” on the broadcast show and “Wow” as a web-exclusive performance, in the run-up to his first headlining show at Madison Square Garden tonight. When introducing “Colors” Colbert revealed about Beck: “he used to crash on my couch in LA.”

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 October 2016, but was pushed back to a TBA date). “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. Beck later shared a lyric video for “Dear Life” and a full on video for “Up All Night,” as well as a video for “Fix Me.” Then there was a remix of “Up All Night” by Los Angeles electronic duo Oliver and a video for “Colors” directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and starring actress Alison Brie (Community, GLOW).
