Beck reveals all about new album

And he'll have some special guests at V Festival

Beck’s new album will be titled ‘The Information’ and is out on October 2, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

The record, the follow-up to 2005’s ‘Guero’, was produced by Nigel Godrich. The man most famous for his production efforts with Radiohead also worked with Beck on his 2002 acoustic album ‘Sea Change’, though ‘The Information’ will not be a stripped-down record.

The album will come with a blank sleeve and booklet and a sheet of stickers for people to make their own sleeve. It will also come with a disc of videos – one for each track.


Beck returns to the UK to play the V Festival over the weekend of August 19-20, performing before Radiohead on the Main Stage. He will be joined onstage by a group of puppets for his entire set.
