New Song by Beck "Defriended" (Plus Summer Tour Dates Info)

As reported by Rolling Stone yesterday, Beck is working on not one, but two new albums of new songs to be completed soon.  One will focus on acoustic material, while the other will continue the progression of the musician's path since 2008's Modern Guilt.  Both albums will be self-released after years with Universal Records.

In the meantime, a stand alone tune called "Defriended" can be found online.  It begins with a simple electronic buzz until building with ebbs and flows of disjointed sounds, plus wavering vocals over Beck's signature twang.  Take a listen below or on YouTube, and check out Beck's summer tour plans -- in case you can be in the same place at the same time.
