Record Club is back for a new covers album
The Record Club records a cover album in a single day with no rehearsal and then posts tracks on Beck.com.
The musician explains the odd choice of album on his website, stating Yanni‘s album came to mind when he caught a TV special of the show “that was played repeatedly on PBS through-out the mid-90s”.
‘Santorini’ is already on Beck‘s site, with a new track set to be posted every week.
Tortoise will only appear on a few tracks later in the album with Beck‘s site hinting “several studio musician heavyweights were brought in to read a heavily doctored score with interpolations of everything from Stravinsky to Shania Twain“.
Previously albums covered by The Record Club include INXS’ ‘Kick’, Skip Spence’s ‘Oar’, and ‘The Velvet Underground & Nico’.
