As previewed in greater detail here, Beck’s upcoming (albeit delayed) album features the songs “7th Heaven” (described by Q as a “lost ’80s pop classic”), “No Distraction” (“a self-help cry in the face of 21st century overload“) and “Dear Life” (“lush Beatles-like psychedelia spiked with an existential cry-for-help for a lyric.”) (Click through for the full album preview.) So far we’ve only heard two songs from the album, the smash singles “Dreams” and “Wow.” Now there’s a third for our listening pleasure: “Up All Night” will debut on FIFA 17 on September 27th.
FIFA 17 is a compilation for the upcoming soccer season of over 50 cuts representing more than 15 countries. Among them there’s a Zedd & Grey song produced exclusively for FIFA 17; debut tracks by Beck, Kasabian, Bishop Briggs, Ceci Bastida feat. Aloe Blacc, Capital Cities, and others; and older songs by Two Door Cinema Club, Bastille, Phantogram, Glass Animals and more. The collection spans rock, EDM, hip-hop and pop with an emphasis on crowd-pleasing, fist-pumping, go-team-go jams. Which makes the Beck’s new “Up All Night” a perfect fit. A sample of its celebratory lyrics:
- Hands up, you’re waving it around now get yourself together/ When you count the dominoes fall it’s time to go (from verse 1)
- Just want to stay up all night with you (from pre-chorus)
- I’ll keep it moving don’t wait for nothing now (from chorus)
- One, two – what you doing?/ I’ve been jumping through some hoops want to get my body loose (from verse 2)
- Hands up in the air if you don’t really care (from outro)
FIFA 17 is out September 27 in North America and September 29 worldwide. The FIFA 17 soundrack is streaming on Spotify in its entirety with one exception: Beck’s “Up All Night.” For “Up All Night” click here. Warning: if you don’t dig Beck’s new pop-tastic, Greg Kurstin-produced sound – as previously heard on “Dreams” and “Wow” – this may not be for you. (Oh look, Stereopathetic Soulmanure and One Foot In The Grave are uploaded in full on YouTube.) Then again, maybe you can love to hate Beck’s new music.
“Up All Night” can also be heard in a new commercial for Fossil’s latest line of smartwatches:
