New Beck Song "Chemtrails" Hits the Web

May 20, 2008 9:20 AM ET

Beck's "Chemtrails," the first song from his upcoming Danger Mouse-produced Modern Guilt, is now streaming on the singer's official website. As Rolling Stone reported last week, the album channels British rock of the 1960s, and the psychedelic "Chemtrails" fits that mold. Beck seems to be channeling Jefferson Airplane/Moby Grape mastermind Skip Spence — an artist Beck previously covered — on the track, which may or may not be the first single. Modern Guilt still doesn't have an official release date, but sources say June is a safe bet.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
