BECK is to donate a cover of BRUCE HAACK’s ‘FUNKY LITTLE SONG’ to a forthcoming tribute album in honour of the star.

Much of Haack’s career was spend creating critically acclaimed children’s music and writing musical scores.

However, he became equally famous in the 60s as an electronic pioneer, making instruments out of household gadgets, and is a noted influence on a number of the current electronica bands.

Now, Beck has joined forces with other bands including Stereolab, Money Mark, Mouse On Mars, Cornelius and Sukia in donating tracks for the forthcoming, as-yet-untitled album, according to the official Beck website,
