Back in 2012, Beck released a sheet music-only album called Song Reader. Fans and musicians were encouraged to learn and perform the songs themselves, and the official website hosts submitted versions. Now, Beck is releasing a pseudo-official recording of the album, featuring a host of musicians as contributors. Each track is performed by a different musician, including Fun, Lord Huron, Jack White, Tweedy, Norah Jones, Jack Black, Jarvis Cocker, Laura Marling, Eleanor Friedberger, The New York Dolls’ David Johansen, and others. Beck himself performs one track, “Heaven’s Ladder.” It will be available July 29. The full tracklist is below.
