Nate Ruess of Fun. Debuts New Song Featuring Beck
Fun.'s anthemic pop-rock has joined forces with the subdued acoustic sounds of Beck's Morning Phase on the new song from Nate Ruess called, "What This World is Coming To." Give it a listen via Stereogum.
Ruess said of working on the song with the Grammy Award winner:
Working with, and getting a chance to learn from Beck has been an incredible experience. Not only does he put more studio time in than anyone I know, his back catalogue of musical references is unattainable to us mere mortals. I’d let it slide — but he also happens to be a wonderful person and family man to boot. Did I mention his guitar chops? Here’s hoping we get another chance to work together soon. I won’t act like I’m texting while I’m nervously filming him shred.
Last month, Ruess shared "AhHa" and, in February, he released "Nothing Without Love." Both songs will be on his debut solo album, Grand Romantic, set for release on June 16. Guess is currently on tour in support of the record, and his itinerary can be found at his website.
