Dark Star (Dave Sitek remix)
Did you hear? Dave Sitek from TV On The Radio remixed Beck's "Dark Star" track from his new album, The Information. Check it out here on contactmusic.com!
Three years in the making, The Information is the album Beck began work on with producer Nigel Godrich (Beck's Sea Change, Mutations; Radiohead's OK Computer, Kid A) before last year's Guero. The Information was finally completed earlier this year once extended touring engagements necessitated by Guero's success, as well as Nigel's other commitments, were fulfilled.
The Information is comprised of 15 songs and a DVD featuring homemade videos for each of the 15 songs shot in-studio during the actual sessions. The artwork for The Information is either non-existent or infinite, depending on one's point of view: Each copy will come in a blank package with one of four collectible sticker sheets specially designed by American and European artists hand-picked by Beck.
In addition to the self-shot videos currently floating around on Beck.com, Beck's MySpace page, Youtube and various other corners of the Internet, Beck recently shot a video for "Cell Phone's Dead," directed by Michel Gondry.
