It was recently announced that Beck's Song Reader project was going to receive a proper release this month (it was originally released as sheet music back in 2012), but not much was revealed in terms of solid details... until now. It appears that he'll be enlisting a little help from some big names, as the tracklisting for the album has been revealed.
