Beck - Song Reader

Back in 2012, when he was taking a break from recording proper albums, Beck released Song Reader, an “album” made up of nothing but sheet music. And after refusing to play the songs in public for a long time, he staged a couple of big Song Reader concerts in London and L.A. Many of the famous friends who helped out at those events have now contributed to the official studio version of Song Reader, which is as much a compilation as a Beck album. On the recorded version, Beck only sings one song, “Heaven’s Ladder.” Elsewhere, other people take on the songs that Beck wrote. Contributors include Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Tweedy, Fun., Norah Jones, Laura Marling, Eleanor Friedberger, Jason Isbell, and Jack Black. And if you’ve got Spotify, you can stream the whole album below.

Song Reader is out today on Capitol.
