You might recall, last year Beck released sheets of music to get freely interpreted by other artists. He did a short tour with the songs, and some of them got included on his follow up to Sea Change, Morning Phase.
Now Beck has decided to release the Song Reader in full, with guest performances by Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Tweedy, Eleanor Friedberger, Laura Marling, Swamp Dogg, Jack Black, Sparks, the New York Dolls' David Johansen, Jason Isbell, Loudon Wainwright III, Norah Jones and Fun.
It also includes a track performed by the man himself. The album is slated for a July 29 release.
