Beck is putting out a new album this December…as sheet music. His upcoming project, Beck Hansen’s Song Reader, is an album of 20 songs of sheet music, which will be released by McSweeney’s. The songs have never been released or recorded, and will exist only in written format with accompanying art. The idea is that the album is supposed to exist only as you hear it and that the overall sound of the song depends on you. Select renditions of the songs will be posted on McSweeney’s upon the song reader’s release.
