Three new Beck tracks have surfaced online – scroll down to listen to them.

The songs – titled 'Cities', 'Touch The People' and 'Spiral Staircase' – were written for the PlayStation 3 game Sound Shapes and the videos feature footage from the game.

Last week, Beck announced that he would be releasing his new album in the form of individual pieces of sheet music. 'Song Reader' will be put out by publishers Faber & Faber in December, and will consist of the notation for 20 unrecorded and unreleased songs.

According to a statement from the publishers, the idea behind the release is for fans to play the songs and 'bring them to life' themselves.

The sheet music will come with full colour art works for each song as well as a hardcover carrying case. Two of the 20 songs on the 'album' are instrumentals. The tracks 'Do We? We Do' and 'Don't Act Like Your Heart Isn't Hard' also feature.

Back in May, Beck released a one-off, Jack White-produced track, 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today', on White's Third Man Records label. It also features the B-Side 'Blue Randy'.
