Beck will follow a handful of dates this April with a longer North American stretch in June and July to support his new album Morning Phase.

The singer will perform at Santa Barbara, Calif.'s Arlington Theater on April 9th ahead of his dates at this year's Coachella Festival, which he'll then follow-up with shows in Tucson, Ariz. and El Paso and Frisco, Texas.

Beck reveals the secrets behind his latest album Morning Phase

The musician's summer trek will kick off at the State Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio on June 19th and includes dates at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware (taking place June 2st and 22nd) and a July 1st show in New York City's Central Park. You can check out Beck's full itinerary below.

Morning Phase marks Beck's first official LP since 2008's Modern Guilt – though he did put out a collection of new tunes in 2012 as a book of sheet music called Song Reader – and found the musician recording with the same band that helped him craft his 2002 album, Sea Change.

Beck recently said he might follow-up Morning Phase with a collaborative project featuring Pharrell Williams and other high-profile performers later this year, "time willing." You can check out Beck performing Morning Phase cut "Wave" during his seventh appearance on Saturday Night Live a few weeks back.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
