Twenty years after “Loser” took the country by storm and six years after his last studio album, Beck will finally unleash a new LP in 2014. Morning Phase, described in a press release as a companion piece to 2002’s Sea Change, is set for a February release on Capitol Records.

Beck will be backed on Morning Phase by the same musicians he’s been performing with live this summer and who played on Sea Change -Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and Jason Falkner. According to the press release the new album, “harkens back to the stunning harmonies, song craft and staggering emotional impact of [Sea Change], while surging forward with infectious optimism.” Sounds good to us!

Morning Phase will be Beck’s first album since 2008’s Modern Guilt. The track listing, a specific release date and more information on the LP are expected in the coming months.
