Beck: Wow

Coming 20 years after his album Odelay, Beck’s new song “Wow” takes you by surprise (did anyone else flashback to Leslie Carter’s manufactured one hit wonder “Like Wow”). Whether he’s writing folk rock or Rick and Morty-influenced dance tunes like “Wow,” Beck always comes through with a great hook and unpredictable lyrics. “Wow” comes with one razzle dazzle, actually-not-boring lyric video, directed by London-based graphic artist Jimmy Turrell, where cut-out collages have become animated. He plays Governors Ball this weekend and more festivals, particularly internationally, this summer.
