After teasing the track on social media yesterday, the acclaimed genre-bender has unveiled something very different. It's got sultry R&B vibes and big arena-folk falsetto - trap beats waltz with sax and low-slung vox. It's smooth, jagged, unnervingly ambitious, and pumped with jittery energy.

"Wow" follows "Dreams", and was debuted today (2 June) on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show. Beck and Greg Kurstin worked on the track together.

Beck's new album arrives 21 October via Virgin/EMI. It'll follow 2014's Morning Phase and Song Reader releases.

Listen to "Wow" below and check out Beck's new dates after.


25 - FOLD Festival, London
26 - Glastonbury Festival, Pilton
28 - O2 Brixton Academy, London
29 - Albert Hall, Manchester
