Morning Phase
Morning Phase
is the ninth official studio album and twelfth overall by American singer Beck.[7] The album was released in February 2014 by his new label, Capitol Records. According to a press release, Morning Phase is a "companion piece" to Beck's 2002 album Sea Change. Several of the musicians who recorded parts for Sea Change returned to record for Morning Phase. Upon release the album received critical acclaim and was nominated for five awards at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, winning three: Album
Album
of the Year, Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and Best Rock Album. Along with winning the award, Chris Martin
Chris Martin
collaborated with Beck
Beck
to sing "Heart Is a Drum" at the Grammys.[8] The roots of the album are similar to Sea Change, as well as 1993's Golden Feelings
Golden Feelings
and 1994's One Foot in the Grave. Most of the critics noted the change in sound from several previous recordings, and the genre being the same as Sea Change.[9]

Background[edit] Beck's previous album, Modern Guilt, was released in 2008, and was the final album released under his Interscope Records contract.[10] In the interim between album releases, Beck
Beck
worked on a wide variety of projects, including new studio material, most of which went unreleased for several years.[10] In October 2012, bassist and frequent collaborator Justin Meldal-Johnsen
Justin Meldal-Johnsen
commented: "I would estimate that there are currently about three or four albums’ worth of material floating around," and Beck
Beck
himself said that "I wasn't sure if I was going to put out a record – or if I should put out a record. It felt like I was standing still, while everything else was in such flux."[10] In 2012 and 2013, Beck
Beck
began to perform live with more regularity than in the years immediately following the Modern Guilt
Modern Guilt
tour.[11] This period also saw new original material. The "I Just Started Hating Some People Today/Blue Randy" single was released in 2012, and he self-released the "Defriended", "I Won't Be Long", and "Gimme" singles in 2013.[12] All three of these songs were standalone releases as 12-inch singles on his own FONOGRAF label.[10] "I Won't Be Long" and "Gimme" were allegedly from an unfinished project from 2009, described as being similar to Odelay.[10] According to Beck, the remaining songs from this project may see a similar release method.[10] In June 2013, Beck
Beck
announced the expected release of two new albums for 2014, with one of the two being an "acoustic" album. The press release for the "acoustic" album (along with the news of his contract with Capitol Records) arrived in October 2013, announcing the title as Morning Phase
Morning Phase
and giving a February 2014 release window.[13] The other still-unfinished album would be planned for a later release. In comparing the production of Morning Phase
Morning Phase
with his previous album, Beck
Beck
stated that prior to recording Modern Guilt
Modern Guilt
in 2008, he had suffered a serious spinal injury,[14][15] and that the recording process for Modern Guilt
Modern Guilt
was like "doing it with both hands tied behind your back. It hurt to sing. I'm whispering through half of those vocals."[10] On the other hand, Beck
Beck
said that Morning Phase
Morning Phase
was a much more satisfying experience: "Some of the songs on the new record – I get to shout and yell. I'm like, 'Thank you!' I had a lot of ideas and things I'd been wanting to do. This last year and a half, I feel like I can really do them."[10] Recording[edit] In 2005, Beck
Beck
began recording material in Nashville for a new album, but it remained incomplete for several years.[10] It was not until 2012 that he returned to continue the project, this time recording at Third Man Records
Third Man Records
(which, incidentally had not existed at the time of his previous sessions).[10] Two songs from these new sessions, "I Just Started Hating Some People Today" and "Blue Randy" were released that year as a non-album single on Third Man's Blue Series.[10] Other songs, like "Blackbird Chain", "Country Down", and "Waking Light" were reserved for what would become Morning Phase.[10] In the beginning of 2013, he recorded a great deal of the album in his hometown of Los Angeles in three days, with familiar studio and touring musicians Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Roger Joseph Manning, Jr., and Smokey Hormel. The next six months, Beck
Beck
worked with this material for an album release.[10] His father David Campbell contributed orchestral arrangements for the album, as he had done previously for Sea Change, and most of Beck's other albums.[10] Singles[edit] On January 20, 2014, the album's first single "Blue Moon" was released.[4] Beck
Beck
released the second single from the album, "Waking Light", on February 4, 2014.[5][16] "Say Goodbye" was released as the third single in the United Kingdom on May 5, 2014.[17] "Heart Is a Drum" was released to United States adult album alternative radio on July 28, 2014, as the fourth single.[18] Reception[edit] Critical reception[edit]

Prior to its release, Morning Phase
Morning Phase
was placed at number two on Stereogum's list of most anticipated albums of 2014.[27] Upon its release, the album received acclaim from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 81 (based on 46 reviews), indicating "universal acclaim."[19] At Mojo, James McNair stated that " Morning Phase
Morning Phase
isn't an album that obsequiously courts your approval [...] it just does."[28] Andy Gill of The Independent
The Independent
wrote that the album is "a deeply satisfying journey, the sadness tempered by the warmth and beauty of the settings, and the gentle determination of the resolution. Accordingly, it’s a much better album than Sea Change, just as immersive, but wiser and less indulgently wallowing."[24] According to Reef Younis of Clash magazine, Morning Phase
Morning Phase
has a "slight, melancholic tone," and "there's an awful lot to love."[29] CraveOnline's Iann Robinson rated the album 9/10, calling it a "proud successor to Sea Change" and "downtempo stroke of genius," and noting that it's some of Beck's best work in years.[30] Accolades[edit]
