The artist formerly known as Beck (and also still known as Beck) has completed quite the tribute to Prince. Complete with a flowy purple shirt, the alternative rock star recorded a new surprise EP at Prince's legendary studio in Minnesota; Paisley Park Sessions features new Prince-style versions of hit Beck songs like "Where It’s At" from Odelay and “Up All Night” from Colors in addition to "The Paisley Experience," a medley of Prince covers. "He’s a big influence for me," said Beck in a behind-the-scenes interview. “The way he performed was really something that I connected with.”

Beck is set to release his new album Hyperspace on November 22, featuring the single "Saw Lightning" which he co-wrote and co-produced with Pharrell Williams. Hyperspace will mark Beck's first new album since 2017's Grammy Award-winning Colors.
