Morning Music Notes
Beck has given us some juicy details about his upcoming new album, Morning Phase. The album features a lot of the musicians from his Sea Change album, and comes from the traditions of “California music.” Three of the tracks were recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Records back in 2011. There’s also another album that will be out in 2014, which he’s been previewing through random single releases like Gimme, Defriended, and I Won’t Be Long. (via Pitchfork)
Pitchfork hasn’t been reading the headlines at all and have decided to launch a quarterly print magazine called The Pitchfork Review. Are they going to give their staff pagers, too? (via – surprise – Pitchfork)
For the first time since the pre-CD era of the 1980s, no albums have sold more than a million copies this year in the UK. The biggest album this year was actually released last year, and was the only million selling artist of 2013 – Emeli Sandi. (via Guardian)
