Beck’s next studio album has been delayed for a painstaking amount of time, turning fans into restless children on the road to Disney World. With the original date supposed to be in late 2014, then 2015, then the first half of 2016, then October of this year and now in November. With a rumor of another push back in the near future, according to Stereogum it seems we will never get to Disneyworld. Thankfully, a couple of old never released songs have come to the surface to help relax fans for the rest of this perpetual car ride. Only one of the songs has an official title, “Curfew,” while the other track is an untitled instrumental. Both songs can be heard below, via Facebook.
According to Consequence of Sound, Beck had contributed this music to D.J. Caruso’s thriller, I Am Number Four. The science fiction teen romance about six aliens doing what they can do survive on earth, released back in 2011. “Curfew” follows a steady drum beat with a gargled screeching guitar and Beck’s faintly distinct vocals. While the untitled track is strictly instrumental, it creates a feeling of high intensity and an indescribable rush of suspense.
There has also been a handful of different songs that Beck has teased during his mysterious album delay. These three songs are titled “Dreams”, “Wow” and “Up All Night.“
