Singer/songwriter Beck is giving his forthcoming album a twist by releasing the songs only as sheet music.
The Loser hitmaker has created 20 tracks for the record, but rather than heading into the studio to lay down the music and vocals, Beck is selling Song Reader in a unique format.
The album package comprises 108 pages with individual full-colour booklets for each song - 18 featuring original lyrics, and two instrumental tunes.
A post on Beck's website reads, "The Song Reader is an experiment in what an album can be at the end of 2012 - an alternative that enlists the listener in the tone of every track, and that's as visually absorbing as a dozen gatefold LPs put together."
The album will be released in December (12).
