Published Nov 26, 2013Beck's new album, Morning Phase, is still a few months away, but the multitalented songwriter is passing the time until then by unveiling a very different sort of release: a set of specially designed frames for eyeglasses company Warby Parker.
Beck's design is called Carmichael, and it's available in two colours: crystal (clear) and root beer (tortoise shell). They cost $95 for a pair of glasses, while sunglasses cost $95 with non-prescription lenses or $150 with a prescription.
Warby Parker's website notes that the company was inspired by Beck's sheet music album, Song Reader. Certainly, the specs will help out any short-sighted fans who might have trouble seeing the music in Song Reader.
Go here to check them out.
Warby Parker recently hosted Beck's Song Reader concert this past weekend at Los Angeles's Walt Disney Concert Hall, when the singer unveiled "Wave" from Morning Phase. The album is due out in February through Capitol.
