Fresh off of the release of his Paisley Park Sessions EP, Beck is reconnecting with Pharrell Williams to deliver another new, jointly-created record off his forthcoming full-length album Hyperspace. For their latest Hyperspace track to be liberated, Beck is sharing its closing cut “Everlasting Nothing.” Notably, Pharrell Williams co-wrote and co-produced “Everlasting Nothing,” and also performed the song’s keyboard and drum sections; Beck handled vocals, guitar and piano. Altogether, Pharrell had his hand in seven of Beck’s Hyperspace LP.

“I’d always wanted to make a record with him,” Beck recently revealed to NME, sharing his thoughts on collaborating with Pharrell Williams for his upcoming album. “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 added. “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 check out Beck and Pharrell’s new collaborative track “Everlasting Nothing” above. Beck’s next studio album Hyperspace will hit streaming services and similar platforms next Friday, November 22.
