Beck has debuted another Pharrell accompanied track from his upcoming album Hyperspace entitled “Everlasting Nothing.” In addition to writing and producing the song together, Beck performs vocals, guitar and piano on this track, while Pharrell performs on drums and keyboards.
“Everlasting Nothing,” is a soothing ballad, with a calm instrumental beginning with steady acoustic guitar chords, which are complimented by Pharrell’s signature hip hop-inspired drums. The track blends elements of blues, rock, hip hop, soul and electronic music, defining genre categorization like many of Beck’s signature songs.
The new songs follows two other Pharrell produced singles. including “Uneventful Days,” which is accompanied by a Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) directed music video, and “Saw Lightning (Freestyle).” Beck has been a self-professed fan of the famed Neptunes producer for over two decades, and his latest album features production from Pharrell on 7 of of its tracks.
“I’ve been waiting for 20 years,” Beck began before continuing with, “this is very different from any situation I’ve made music in. There’s a very particular energy and things happen very fast. It’s completely open, so anything goes. Everything’s on, inspiration strikes, and everything happens incredibly fast. There’s not a lot of second guessing, which is great.”
BEck recently debuted his Paisley Park Sessions EP earlier this week on Amazon, and showcases Beck and his band performing a medley of Prince’s hit songs“Raspberry Beret,” “When Doves Cry,” “Kiss,” and “1999,” at the eponymous Paisley Park complex.
