During the month of May, rumors began swirling about the upcoming release by Beck. Was Danger Mouse the producer, and does it feature Cat Power
? Would it be released by Universal a'la The Raconteurs
latest effort? Would it be given a name prior to it hitting the streets? Is Beck Hansen really
his name? (Okay... maybe not that last one.)
Last week, listeners got their first taste of the enigmatic album, when Beck & Co. announced the first single, "Chemtrails," is available for streaming here, and the promise that more info on the release will be coming in the near future.
