Beck tries some Tobacco this May

on February 22, 2010, 11:00am

For someone who hasn’t put out an album in nearly two years, Beck is sure keeping himself in the headlines. After collaborating with Charlotte Gainsbourg on her stellar new album, I.R.M , and Jamie Lidell on his forthcoming effort The Compass, the indie legend is now lending his talents to Tom Fec, aka Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Tobacco, who on May 25th will release his second solo album, Maniac Meat, on Anticon Records. Of the 16 tracks, Beck appears on “Fresh Hex” “Grape Aerosmith”. Others tracks sporting equally awesome titles include “Unholy Demon Rhythms”, “Nuclear Waste Aerobics”, and “New Juices From the Hot Tub Freaks” (what does that even mean?).

Before Maniac Meat is released, Fec will go on a short American warm-up tour. Check out the full list of confirmed dates as well as the album’s tracklist below.
