Beck to release Song Reader

Beck’s now legendary Song Reader – twenty Beck compositions previously released exclusively as illustrated sheet music in partnership with McSweeney’s — will receive a long awaited traditional release on July 28th, when Warby Parker/Capitol Records issues the Beck Song Reader compilation album, produced by Beck and Randall Poster, known for his music supervision work with directors Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Sam Mendes and many others.

Warby Parker will commemorate the release of Song Reader by reissuing limited-edition Carmichael frames created in collaboration with Beck, this time in Black Cherry—as well as a new edition of the Song Reader book, featuring two new prints from artist Marcel Dzama. The album will feature the performing talents of Song Reader featuring Jack White, FUN., Jarvis Cocker, Jeff Tweedy, Jack Black, Laura Marling and many more.
