Beck's New Album Will Be a Song Reader Published By McSweeney's

Is this the twee-est thing ever?

Beck's forthcoming album, Beck Hansen's Song Reader, will arrive in December via McSweeney's and, per its title, will not be an actual album.  Rather, it'll be a collection of sheet music featuring twenty unrecorded and unreleased songs.'ll have to play the songs yourself on an instrument to hear what they sound like.

Frankly, we'd rather he collaborate on a cookbook with Devendra Banhart instead.
