Not much has been known about Beck’s forthcoming album Colors but in a new interview with Rolling Stone, he divulges some of the details about his new project.

The album, which will be out in October, marks his return and follow-up to Morning Phase, which nabbed the Grammy for Album of the Year. “These are complex songs,” he said. “All trying to do two or three things at once. It’s not retro and not modern. To get everything to sit together so it doesn’t sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking.”

Beck teamed with producer Greg Kurstin (who also recently produced the new Foo Fighters LP) for the record and the two holed up at Kurstin’s home studio in Los Angeles, playing every instrument on the record. “Between the two of us, we can play everything, and we don’t have to go through the filter of other people,” Beck said.

Currently, Beck is slated to play a number of shows this fall, including a lengthy opening slot for U2. Consult his full schedule here.
