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.
