Beck Planning Two New Albums

BeckBeck is planning to release two new albums this year.

The "Devil's Haircut" musician is working on a follow up to 2008's Modern Guilt as well as an acoustic album, according to Rolling Stone magazine. One completely new track, "Defriended" has already appeared on the internet, but it is unknown if it will appear on either album.

Beck said last year he had gone back to working on some ideas he had started in 2008: "There is music and its coming. I have this one record I started in 2008, it got put aside for a long time, but recently I've been mixing some of the songs. I'm not sure if they'll be singles, EPs or an album, but it will come out in some way and it sounds sonically adventurous."

Beck's last musical project was Song Reader which was a collection of sheet music. Fans from around the world were then encouraged to share their own interpretations and versions of the tracks.

Beck Wants Jack White to Cover His Song

Beck and Jack White

Beck wants to hear Jack White perform one of the tracks from his Song Reader album. The "Devil's Haircut" musician's latest album is only available as sheet music, as he wants to hear other people's interpretations of his tracks before he releases any recordings of his own, and he's particularly interested to hear Jacks' take on the track "I'm Down."

"Initially, I'm curious to hear what other people do with the songs. I don't want to throw my hat in until later. I sent the songs to Jack White and he was very encouraging. He liked 'I'm Down,'" Beck said.
