Beck has shared his take on Neil Young’s 1972 seminal track, “Old Man,” the tune has been released as a single and can be streamed below via the artist’s official YouTube channel. The cover debuted last night as promotional material during NFL Sunday Night Football.
The singer’s take on the Harvest classic aired on NBC and featured video clips of a lone Beck seated with his acoustic guitar as he delivers the iconic lyrics. Mixed in the video were cuts of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Tom Brady, setting the scene for next week’s highly talked-about showdown.
Moreover, in the video (which can be viewed below), the line “twenty-four and there’s so much more” perfectly frames clips of Mahomes, who took home the sport’s top honors at the tender age of 24, during the 2020 Super Bowl, when the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20.
