Watch the first public performances of Beck playing material from his Song Reader album.
Last year Beck released his Song Reader album; an album completely unrecorded, exclusively available as sheet music. Beck explained the album was designed to be up for interpretation, so much so he refused to play the any of the songs live. Even at the Song Reader Event in Los Angles other musicians played the songs while Beck opted out of performing (read the mxdwn review here). After months of avoiding his Song Reader material Beck performed two of the songs in Santa Cruz. You can watch fan footage of Beck playing “Sorry” and “Heaven’s Ladder” below (via Stereogum).
Beck will be doing a tour this summer, playing a select few acoustic performances.
