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.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
