Beck‘s “Heart Like a Drum” video is a lovely, eerie and meditative clip that finds the master singer-songwriter wandering around an abandoned farm with the Grim Reaper, astronauts (or at least the ’50s comic book version of astronauts) and a swagged-out version of himself from his own 1994 “Loser” video.
With reverse exposure and frames that look like they’re about to run off the projector, the whole thing plays like a vintage art film, which is probably up your alley if you’re watching a Beck video.
“Heart Is a Drum” comes from Beck’s latest album, the Sea Change-esque Morning Phase, but he has another album dropping today, too.
The studio version of Song Reader — a collection of Beck-penned tunes that formerly only existed in sheet music form — is finally here. Beck Song Reader features Jack White, Jack Black, Fun, Jarvis Cocker, Laura Marling, Beck himself, and many others performing the Song Reader compositions.
