Beck 'Song Reader' (ft. Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand, Beth Orton) (live videos)
Published Jul 05, 2013Since Beck released his sheet music album, Song Reader, last year, we've heard lots of artists share their own interpretations of the unrecorded songs. Now, we can get some more insight into what the songs are supposed to sound like, as Beck himself performed all of the tunes last night (July 4) at the Barbican in London, UK.
Among the artists who performed with Beck are Jarvis Cocker (of Pulp), Franz Ferdinand, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beth Orton, Joan Wasser (of Joan as Police Woman), Guillemots and more.
Below, watch fan-shot footage of Beck performing "Don't Act Like Your Heart Isn't Hard," I'm Down," "Do We? We Do," "Why Did You Make Me Care?," "Just Noise," and "Rough on Rats." Unless Beck releases the concert as a live album, this might be the closest we get to hearing official, definitive versions of these songs.
