The album includes ten tracks, and features production from Pharrell Williams. Beck talked about the theme of the album, as well as what it was like to work with Williams. “My thought with the record was, I started to fall into this structure that each song was a different person, a portrait of a person in a mood of life,” he told the Independent.
“Not a narrative of a life story at all, just a snapshot, a freeze frame of a milieu of a day in a life, that each person in the songs was trying to find some way in their life to grapple with the world, their lives and their past, their limitations, fear, trauma all those things that we share, and the various ways in which we try to navigate all these things,” Beck added.
Beck said that he and Williams have tried to work together for nearly two decades. “In passing, we’ve discussed working together for 15, 16, 17 years, a long time,” Beck explains. “It just took a while because there’s so many other moving parts. I’m a big admirer of his, always wanted to work with him. It’s a leap of faith and curiosity, to see what would come out of us working together… My original thought when I first met with him was I just wanted to make something that had a kind of joy to it, a happiness.”
“I remember saying the day we went to work together, ‘I want to make something that feels happy,’ and so I went into the studio with him and he said, ‘Before we get started, I just want to play you something I just recorded and I want to get your thoughts,’ and he played me the song ‘Happy’,” Beck recalled. “It sort of proves the point. There’s a positivity that he exudes and embodies. It’s very unusual.”
