In the 16 (!) years since "Loser" helped shake the nation out of a grunge coma, Beck hasn't had any trouble staying relevant. But since the release of his last album--2008's Modern Guilt--the recently-40 troubadour has been making like James Franco and working at an unbelievably impressive clip, with a high-profile roster of artists. He's been working so hard, in fact, that--according to a recent interview with Pitchfork--he hasn't even had time to release the album he first recorded two years ago. In the interview, Beck makes it clear that he'd like his new, vague sounding ("It's much more...it doesn't really...I'm not good at describing it") material to see the light of day as soon as possible. He also expounded upon his highly-anticipated production work for Stephen Malkmus (90% done!), and gave some (but nowhere near enough) context for that inexplicable Yanni thing. You can read it here.
