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.
