Dear Beck,

One Animal Collective is enough Animal Collectives. Be Beck instead.


“Defriended” will be available as a single, and presumably, on a new full-length Beck album to be released independently later this year. There’s a second new Back album on the way. It’s acoustic and probably, hopefully, maybe won’t sound like Animal Collective bros ripping big bong hits in between a debate over who has the greatest navel. I’d like to think so.
