Beck to debut three new songs in new PS3 game 'Sound Shapes'
Beck has announced that he will be debuting three brand new songs on the soundtrack to new computer game Sound Shapes.

The tracks, which are titled 'Cities', 'Touch The People' and 'Spiral Staircase', will each feature on a different level of the game, which is due for release next month.

According to Sony, the new PS3 adventure Sound Shapes is "a classic side-scrolling platformer where your actions make the music".

As well as Beck, Deadmau5, I Am Robot And Proud and Jim Guthrie will also contribute music. The game itself will be released on August 7.

Last month, Beck released his Jack White-produced track 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today' along with a new B-Side 'Blue Randy'. The two tracks were recorded last year at the Third Man Studio in Nashville when Beck was in the Tennessee city recording the follow-up to 2008's 'Modern Guilt'.

Beck joins the likes of Tom Jones, Laura Marling and Insane Clown Posse in recording and releasing one-off singles on White's Third Man Records.

The singer has not released any details about the follow-up to 'Modern Guilt', with the only postings about the album coming from bass player Justin Meldal-Johnsen, who tweeted that Beck's new material "would blow your mind".
