Listen: Three New Beck Songs

After securing himself as the master of unconventional releases, three songs written for a video game by Beck are now streaming online. Recently, Beck also released a book of sheet music containing all new material from the artist sans recorded versions. While this video game is still a strange way to go about a debut, fans are not complaining.

The video game, Sound Shapes, is a PS3 game featuring three Beck songs: “Cities,” “Touch of the People” and “Spiral Staircase.” Not only do the videos entail the gameplay of this new release, but also detail a shift in Beck’s songwriting. Focusing far more on instrumentation, the vocals tend to remain comfortably in the background.

Other musicians featured on the game are Deadmau5, Islands’ Jim Guthrie and The Constantines’ Shaw-Han Liem, who also co-designed the game.
