Back in April, Beck introduced his next studio album Hyperspace by unveiling its Pharrell Williams-assisted lead single “Saw Lightning.” Now, for our latest preview of Hyperspace , Beck is sharing another collaboration with Pharrell, “Uneventful Days.” Notably, “Uneventful Days” also features a visual component directed by acclaimed Blood Orange architect Dev Hynes.

“I’d always wanted to make a record with him,” Beck recently shared with NME, opening up about working with Pharrell on Hyperspace records like “Uneventful Days.” “We had been friendly over the years and had got together and talked about making some music back in 2012, but around that time he ended up putting out a song with Daft Punk, then ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Happy.’”

“I was not expecting the songs to come out how they did. I was going in thinking of songs like ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot,’” Beck adds. “He felt very strongly that spending a little time with me, that ‘You need to be doing singer-songwriter type of songs’. So that was more of the direction we went in. I really tried to be less ambitious on the production on these songs, like to let them be simple and let them breathe. Pharrell is a master minimalist.”

You can take a look at the new, Dev Hynes-directed music video for Beck’s “Uneventful Days” track — co-produced and co-written by Pharrell — above. Beck’s forthcoming full-length album Hyperspace will see release on Noevember 22 visa Capitol Records.
