Remember the song reader that Beck announced a few months back? So do we, and while it was a cool concept, it falls short once you realize you cannot read or perform music. That's what makes this news tidbit so exciting, as Beck has confirmed he is working on a new LP. Announced during an interview with Australian radio station Triple J, he even confirmed that it will be released on a "pretty much standard format"!
Beck went further, saying, "I started a record, largely recorded in 2008, so I’m trying to carve out some time from all the production work I’m doing to finish those songs before they become records from a lost era. It’s going on a half decade at this point."
There you have it, a new Beck album that we can enjoy simply by pressing play on our iPods. So simple! Till then, though, you can always pick up Beck Hansen's Song Reader when it drops on December 7th. It's worth a try.
