Beck wrote his album using a toy guitar.
The 43-year-old rock singer says he was forced to use a plastic instrument when writing his 2008 album ' Modern Guilt' after suffering a serious spinal injury, which not only jeopardised his singing ability but made holding the instrument excruciatingly painful.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Beck explained: ''When I made 'Modern Guilt' it was really tough. I made that whole record on a toy guitar. I couldn't even sing from here [he says pointing to his waist.] And I could only sing from the neck. It wasn't the greatest time for me.''
The 'Loser' hitmaker claims he was disappointed that he couldn't get back into the studio earlier after major surgery forced him to take a six year hiatus from recording music to fully recover from his injury.
Beck recalled: ''I wanted to make another record and I kept thinking it was going to get better, but it took a real long time to heal. I had a lot of physical therapy and healing. I had about 20 different things done.''
Meanwhile, Beck expressed his excitement ahead of the release of his new album 'Morning Phase', his first in six years, which is out on February 25.
He gushed: ''I've put a lot into it and it's a record I've wanted to make for a long time. It's gratifying feeling that I finally got here.''
