Beck's Song Reader project first began in 2012, when, following a long hiatus, the musician returned with an album composed only of sheet music, making it impossible to hear unless you had enough friends with the necessary talents to read/play the songs.

However, as of today Song Reader is finally available to purchase in more traditional sense, with the likes of Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Laura Marling, actor Jack Black, and Beck himself performing the songs. Stream it below and say goodbye to your friends - we don't need your sight-reading skills anymore.
