First there was “Defriended”…now there is “I Won’t Be Long.” Beck’s second stand-alone single of 2013. As with “Defriended,” there are no current plans for “I Won’t Be Long” to appear on a future album.
Paris was first in line this time. Lucky fans attending Beck’s July 2nd performance at the Cite De La Musique received stickers featuring an image by acclaimed Swedish artist Mamma Andersson. While there was no text on the sticker, a cryptic QR code on the peelaway card led to a YouTube clip featuring Beck’s latest release, “I Won’t Be Long.”
A limited edition 12″ vinyl is now available for pre-order (July 8 release) exclusively via beckiwontbelong.com and features the original track with a special 14:49 extended mix.
“I Won’t Be Long” will also be available for purchase and streaming on all digital providers beginning Monday, July 8th (international release dates may vary).
