Beck - 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today' [Listen]
Before listening to 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today' by Beck, it's pretty easy to figure out what the song will sound like. Firstly, it's released via Third Man Records, which suggests Beck will be leaning more towards the acoustic/country side of his tastes. Secondly, the title is 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today', which gives you a clue as to the lyric direction/stance of the track, and thirdly it's Beck. A curveball is likely to appear.
Are we right? Of course.
"Oh yeah, I'm gonna kill you Randy."
The single (which is backed with 'Blue Randy') was released yesterday via Third Man Records, and was recorded in Nashville at the end of last year.
