Beck has announced details of the first of his two promised albums.

Morning Phase, his 12th studio album and first since 2008's Modern Guilt, is set for a release in February 2014 via his new label home, Capitol Records.

The album is set to feature collaborations with the likes of Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and Jason Falkner. Fans of 2002's Sea Change will be happy to know that Morning Phase is supposed to be a "companion piece of sorts" to the legendary album.
