For as long as Beck has been in the music industry, it’s always refreshing to hear how creative he gets with each release. While the songs from Hyperspace you’ve heard show a different side to him, his new song is on the lighter side and “Dark Places” works in that chill space he occupies so well.
The track isn’t relaxed like his work on Sea Change, yet it’s not a far stretch from that either. Beck finds a way to incorporate a lot of different genres here, while maintaining his essential overall sound. Full of chill tones and an easy going pace, the song has dream pop elements without being dream pop and keeping you engaged from start to finish.
The video can be viewed above of on YouTube. Hyperspace is available for preorder directly from Capitol Records on multiple formats and bundles before its November 22 release. Beck will be on tour December 06 in Las Vegas, NV at Intersect and December 07 in Anaheim, CA at KROQ Almost Christmas.
