Beck releases psychedelic lyrics video for ‘Dear Life’

Beck releases psychedelic lyrics video for ‘Dear Life

Earlier in the month, alternative rock icon Beck announced Colors his long-awaited thirteenth studio album finally had a release date — October 13th this year on Capitol Records. On Friday, he released a lyrics video for ‘Dear Life‘ the latest release from the upcoming album.

Beck describes the song as “just about the inevitable turmoil of being alive. Like, can somebody throw me a lifeline here?”

The lyrics video for ‘Dear Life‘ was directed by Jimmy Turrell, Laura Gorun and Brook Linder, animated by Computerteam and has a cool trippy 1970s feel to it. The song, though, is a bit bland with a feel of ‘haven’t 300 other musicians already created something similar?’ The other songs released from the album so far are better.

As for his upcoming album, Colors has been a long time coming as Beck has been recording, re-recording and changing the album since it first went into production in 2013.

He released ‘Dreams‘ the first track from it back in June, 2015 and then nothing else for a year until ‘Wow‘ in June, 2016.

Up All Night‘ followed in September that year, but the music video didn’t surface until a couple of weeks ago when it was announced the track would be the third single from ‘Colors‘.

You can watch ‘Dear Life‘ with lyrics below.
