Beck Recruits A Jeff & Two Jacks For Song Reader
Beck's most unusual release, the sheet-music collection Song Reader, will get a recorded release on July 29, 2014 – but Beck himself is singing only one of its songs. The record, titled Warby Parker Presents Beck Song Reader, will instead feature studio recordings of Song Reader's 20 tunes as interpreted by Jack White, Jack Black, Jeff Tweedy, Fun., Norah Jones, David Johansen and more, alongside one song, "Heaven's Ladder," by Beck.
The album's release ties into the debut of Beck-created, limited-edition "black cherry" Carmichael eyeglass frames by Warby Parker, which is producing the album. (The album will be released by Capitol Records.) The company is also putting out a new edition of the Song Reader book . MORE HERE
