Beck's New Album To Be Released as Illustrated Book of Sheet Music by McSweeney's
Beck's new album, Beck Hanson's Song Reader, will be coming out as a sheet music only release, thanks in part to McSweeney's, the original publishing house founded by author Dave Eggers. It features original full-color art by Marcel Dzama, Leanne Shapton, Josh Cochran, and many more. Bringing the songs to life depends on you, the reader. Some of the reader renditions will be featured on the McSweeney's website. The album, which includes original art for each song, comes in a hard cover carrying case. The official release date is December 2012, just in time for Christmas!
