Becks´s new project “Song Reader”


Beck got the idea to release his new album only as a music sheet.

Really not as exciting as it sounds?
Exactly, hence he now releases the whole album with a bunch of interesting guests making their interpretations of the songs for those who can´t be bothered buying, reading and playing the sheet music for themselves.
