It’s been almost a year since Beck released an album of non-recorded sheet music. On the Fourth of July, he’ll perform the material live for the first time during a star-studded concert at London’s Barbican, which promises appearances from Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand, Beth Orton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and more, according to SPIN.
Meanwhile, Beck has a number of upcoming U.S. tour dates scheduled for this summer, where he’ll be previewing material from an upcoming acoustic record.
