Ever on the edge of innovation, Beck has contributed three new songs to a beautiful Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita game called Sound Shapes. As the name implies, gameplay and music go hand in hand in Sound Shapes–collecting coins and vanquishing enemies influences the elements of the track, and the tempo of the music changes as levels progress. The songs–“Cities,” “Touch the People,” and “Spiral Staircase”–take up where Beck’s last album Modern Guilt, eschewing that albums darkness for an upbeat sensibility that perfectly mirrors the game’s playfully cartoonish visual style. A cool project from one of music’s most persistently cool people. Check out the tracks and game footage below.
