Hyperspace is the upcoming fourteenth studio album by American musician Beck. It is scheduled to be released through Capitol Records on November 22, 2019.[3] The album was co-produced by Beck with Pharrell Williams,[4] and was preceded by the release of the lead single "Saw Lightning" on April 15, 2019,[1] the track "Hyperlife", as well as the second single "Uneventful Days" on October 17, 2019,[4] and the third single "Dark Places" on November 7, 2019.

Background[edit]

Beck stated that he "had a few things" after concluding the tour for Colors, and "wanted to seize the moment" by working on his own project with Williams after Williams had asked Beck to work on a N.E.R.D album, also revealing that their collaboration was initially "going to be a single or an EP, but I think we were both surprised when there was a body of work here".[4]

On October 10, 2019, Beck posted the album cover on Instagram, which features the title in katakana (ハイパースペース, Haipāsupēsu).[5]
