Beck covers Arcade Fire's 'Rebellion (Lies)' - watch

The artist played an acoustic version of the track during his set at the second Coachella Festival

During his performance at the second Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday night (April 20) Beck covered Arcade Fire's 'Rebellion (Lies)'.

Click above to watch fan-shot footage of the performance, which sees Beck playing the opening of the song on acoustic guitar after telling a story to the crowd about how he first heard the song while waiting in the rain outside a friend's bar as the band played inside.

Later on in the evening Beck joined Arcade Fire onstage, wearing the same papier mâché Pope Francis head that Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad had donned the previous week, while the band covered Prince's 'Controversy'.

Beck will bring his latest album 'Morning Phase' to the UK during festival season, where he will headline three festivals. The singer will top the bill at Ireland's Electric Picnic festival between August 29-31, before heading to Bestival on the Isle of Wight, which takes place from September 4-7 and then Portmeirion, Wales to play Festival No 6 (September 5-7).

Beck could also release a second album in 2014. The Los Angeles musician released his latest record 'Morning Phase' in February, six years after its predecessor 'Modern Guilt', but speaking to US radio station KCRW during a live performance for the channel in Santa Monica, Beck revealed he'd already started working on a follow-up to his most recent album.

"I've been working on and off on a different set of songs," he explained. "They're more boisterous [than 'Morning Phase']. You're screwed with any kind of adjective but hopefully we'll get it out this year."
