November 22, 2019

Before the release of his album, Hyperspace, GRAMMY Award-winner Beck stopped by to talk to RADIO.COM's Megan Holiday.

They started off their conversation on his creative process. Diving in, Beck says he has an idea of what he wants, but "along the way, it becomes something else."

"I think sometimes when you’re making music, the music has a mind of its own," the "Uneventful Days" musician added. "And you have to intuit and follow where the real thing is happening."

Beck also talked about his collaborations with Pharrell, Sky Ferreira, and Chris Martin. He says he wanted the new album to have more collabs and talked about how the divisions in music genres have begun to break down and become more fluid.

"We’re musicians at the end of the day," Beck continued. "Musicians are like, we’re like a map with no borders, you know, we don’t see borders and it’s all music."

Megan also asked what it was like to record an EP at Prince’s legendary home/studios Paisley Park. Beck talked about performing off the cuff, no holds barred and having to be asked to do a Prince cover. They ended up doing four Prince songs! If you ever get to see that performance, you’re in for a treat!
