From Nasty Little Man:
"Gimme," the third standalone single Beck's released this year.
Once again featuring the unmistakable artwork of Mamma Andersson, the physical version of "Gimme" is a double 12": Side A features the regular length vocal and instrumental versions of the track, Side B has an extended-length remix, and Side C and Side D contain two halves of a 30-minute extended edit of the track.
"Gimme" is preceded by two other singles that Beck released earlier this summer: "Defriended" which prompted ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY to rave "Despite the title, Beck is ready to be your BFF again... with his excellently spaced-out stand-alone summer single," and "I Won't Be Long" which moved ROLLING STONE to exclaim "Best news of the summer? Beck's comeback is officially in full swing."
Beck has been anything but idle prior to this "comeback": Currently hard at work one not one but two new albums, Beck has been on a non-stop creative tear since December of 2012, when he released his "Song Reader" book featuring sheet music for 20 unreleased songs. The project has since taken a life of its own, with musicians from across the globe recording their own interpretations of different songs and uploading them onto the internet. Past that, Beck has performed (and will continue to perform) special shows that include eclectic lists of co-conspirators putting their own stamp on the compositions. Following that, Beck reimagined David Bowie's classic "Sound + Vision" with a hand-selected 160-piece orchestra...culminating with a groundbreaking interactive 360-degree filming of a live performance of the track.
