Beck’s User-Generated Music AlbumAugust 10th, 2012
Beck has announced that his next album will arrive in the form of sheet music only and is inviting fans to perform the songs themselves.
The album will come in the form of ‘Beck Hansen’s Song Reader’ and if fans want to hear the music, they’ll have to put some work into it. The song reader contains individual pieces of sheet music making up 20 songs – none of which have been recorded or released before. The beautifully packaged reader also contains artwork from various artists to inspire musicians when they create their own versions.
The reader will be available through publishing house McSweeney’s from December 2012 and selected versions of fans’ songs will be featured on the McSweeney’s site.
A brilliantly modern idea that appeals to the user-generated generation.
