Beck releases new album as sheet music, which is pointless
Beck hasn't been as busy as he once was, so news of a new release from him is pretty exiting for fans of his, right? WRONG. The berk has gone and announced that he's releasing his newest work as sheet music.
The new album will be released as individual pieces of sheet music under the title of Beck Hansen’s Song Reader, coming in at 108 pages which is just brilliant if you can't read or play music.
The idea, of course, is that fans will be able to play the songs themselves and 'bring them to life', which is stupid because not all of us sound as good as Beck when we sing.
A statement from Beck’s representatives says: "Beck’s latest album comes in an almost-forgotten for… complete with full-color, heyday-of-home-play-inspired art for each song and a lavishly produced hardcover carrying case (and, when necessary, ukulele notation), the Song Reader is an experiment in what an album can be at the end of 2012."
You can presume that this is some kind of vague commentary about music piracy too, so the best thing to do is photocopy the shit out of this latest indulgent horsepiss.
