Hear Beck’s Beautiful New Single, ‘Waking Light’

Musician Beck performs onstage during Day 1 of 2012 Outside Lands Music Festival held at Golden Gate Park on August 10, 2012 in San Francisco, California. Beck, sad musician.

After hurting his back, Beck is back. We've already heard "Blue Moon," and now we have another lush yet understated ballad, "Waking Light." His new album, Morning Phase, is being called a tonal sequel of sorts to the sad-Beck masterpiece Sea Change, and you can hear that here. The album comes out on February 25. Good thing winter's not ending anytime soon, because this record seems perfect for it.
