St. Vincent has stepped in to re-work Beck's new single 'Uneventful Days'.
Beck returned in 2019 with his album 'Hyperspace', featuring some extensive collaborations with Pharrell.
A record that dealt with pop possibility while lyrically discussing the end of his marriage, it was a rounded, typically creative endeavour.
Standout song 'Uneventful Days' has been given the St. Vincent treatment, with Annie Clark upping the BPM and bringing the funk.
It's reminiscent of Herbie Hancock's fusion dalliances, with some scorching lead guitar in there as well.
St. Vincent comments:
"I remixed Beck’s new song, 'Uneventful Days!' I guess I was listening to a lot of '70s Herbie and WAR at the time and wondering how much funk was inside me, too."
"I sent it to Beck and he dug it, but he said 'it should be 3bpm faster.' And what do you know? HE WAS SO RIGHT. It made all the difference in the groove.”
Tune in now.
Beck and St. Vincent will appear in the all-star line up for Let's Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute To Prince on January 28th.
