Beck has released a new extended play, recorded at Prince’s legendary Paisley Park Studios. The Paisley Park Sessions EP features renditions of Beck’s “Where It’s At” and “Up All Night” along with a medley of Prince covers, including “Kiss,” “Raspberry Beret” and “1999.”
“I’ve heard the name since I was a child, of Paisley Park,” Beck says in a behind-the-scenes interview. “It’s special to be here and see it in person. Every studio has its own life to it, kind of special energy. It felt very creative. I didn’t have any expectations of what I wanted to happen, it was just kind of coming in here and seeing where it took us, and it was surprising.”
