Beck-I-Wont-Be-Long-608x608

Beck’s new standalone single “I Won’t Be Long” is tremendous stuff. It’s one of my favorite songs of the year, so far. That’s actually a shortened edit version of the track, which gets extended to 15-minutes on the single’s vinyl release.

At 15-minutes long it takes more time to get started, playing around with various electronics and sounds, giving the song a much larger than life feel. Lots of freakout type stuff, before the part of the edit we’re familiar with finally kicks in. The real kicker, around the 9:30 mark, (now former) Sonic Youth member Kim Gordon comes in to add a spoken word piece to the track.

Listen to the extended version over at 1077 The End.
