"I like the new Chance The Rapper record a lot," he said. "Four or five months ago we tried to get Chance on "Wow." I'm not sure what happened with that."

Beck will release his as-yet-untitled new album in October. It's an album that he wants to play a lot of at gigs. "It's what exists in the range between "Dreams" and "Wow." I've worked on it with Greg Kurstin for three and a half years. I was constantly touring while making it, so I was attempting to bring some of that energy into the studio., which isn't always easy. If I get three songs on a record that work live, I'm happy. This time I'm trying to make them all work live."
