Beck to Make Other People’s Albums


Modern Guilt was okay, we suppose, but it certainly wasn't as good as the Velvet Underground's first album. So, today Beck has announced plans for a "record club": He and famous friends will rerecord famous LPs in their entirety — all in one day and without rehearsal — then release a track at a time on his official website. Up first is Velvet Underground, featuring collaborators like Nigel Godrich and, for some reason, Giovanni Ribisi; "Sunday Morning" is currently streaming on As long as they never remake Guero, we totally support this.
