Beck To Release Next Album As Book Of Sheet Music


When it comes to doing things unconventionally, leave it to Beck, who recently announced his plans to release his new album, Song Reader, on individual pieces of sheet music.

Song Reader, to be released by publishers Faber and Faber in December, will consist of the notation for 20 unrecorded and unreleased songs. It will be made up of 108 pages, featuring 20 individual song booklets. The illustrations come courtesy of Marcel Dzama, Leanne Shapton, Josh Cochran, Jessica Hische and more.

"Beck is one of the great maverick pop stars of this, or any age, and as soon as I saw Song Reader the relevance of the concept struck me," Faber and Faber's Publishing Director, Lee Brackstone said. "It is thrilling to welcome Beck onto a music list at Faber that is already home to Julian Cope, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Jarvis Cocker, Nicky Wire and others."

The sheet music will come with full color art works for each song as well as a hardcover carrying case.
