After a long string of new albums in the 2000s, Beck is still fairly quiet when it comes to to new material. Back in 2008, shortly after the release of his last official studio LP Modern Guilt, Beck began working on another album. Other than news from last November that he was still indeed working on the mystery LP, there's been virtually nothing new in regards to its release.

However, Beck has announced a series of tour dates in which he will be performing exclusively solo acoustic sets. One of his scheduled performances, at the Americanarama Festival in Wantagh, New York, will see him paired alongside Bob Dylan, Wilco, and Ryan Bingham. Beck will be filling the role taken by My Morning Jacket for the July 27th date.

The first show will be held May 19th in Santa Cruz, California's Rio Theatre. Check the rest of the dates below.
