New Music: Beck

Share this post

Beck Hanson plays by his own rules. Refusing to play his biggest hit for years. Releasing an album on sheet music in order to make an artistic (and slightly political) statement. And now, releasing a track out of nowhere on the cusp of a holiday — no media build-up, no advance notice.

The Asian and 80s hook-inflected “I Won’t Be Long” does fit the season, however, serving as your whimsical sidekick as you take that perfect walking  down the beach.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
