Listen to Beck cover Neil Young’s “Old Man”

Fonograf Records

Beck has released a cover of the Neil Young song “Old Man.”

The “Loser” artist’s acoustic rendition of the Harvest classic first premiered Sunday during an NBC commercial promoting next week’s Sunday Night Football game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The game is a rematch of 2021’s Super Bowl LV, in which Tom Brady and the Bucs defeated Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs 31-9.

The lyrics for “Old Man” feature the line “24 and there’s so much more,” which, eerily, is the same age both Brady and Mahomes won their first Super Bowl. The 45-year-old Brady, who is 18 years older than Mahomes, is presumably the “Old Man” in this scenario.

Beck’s version of “Loser” is available now via digital outlets.

In other news, Beck made a surprise appearance at Gorillaz‘s show in Los Angeles Friday. According to Rolling Stone, the concert featured the premiere of Beck and Gorillaz’s collaborative song “Possession Island,” which will appear on the Damon Albarn-led cartoon band’s upcoming album Cracker Island, due out February 24, 2023.
