Beck, MGMT, Devendra Banhart to rework albums in one day
Beck has enlisted a group of friends to form the ‘Beck & Friends Music Club’, with which they will re-record entire albums in one-day sessions and post a track a week on Beck.com.

The Record Club will be a regular meeting of various musicians to record an entire album in one day. A single album will be chosen to be covered, with nothing rehearsed or arranged ahead of time.

The intention is to upload one track every week from these sessions to Beck.com, as well as to the websites of those involved in the project.

The first album in the series to be re-worked is ‘The Velvet Underground & Nico’.

MGMT, Devendra Banhart, Jamie Lidell and Nigel Godrich have all been enlisted so far to take part in the club.

Beck.com will undergo an extensive overhaul in the next month, with the new site set to feature several new sections.
