Beck - Beck wants Jack White cover

Beck wants to hear Jack White perform one of the tracks from his 'Song Reader'.

The 'Devil's Haircut' musician's latest album is only available as sheet music, as he wants to hear other people's interpretations of his tracks before he releases any recordings of his own, and he's particularly interested to hear Jacks' take on the track 'I'm Down'.

Beck said: ''Initially, I'm curious to hear what other people do with the songs. I don't want to throw my hat in until later. I sent the songs to Jack White and he was very encouraging. He liked 'I'm Down'.''

When asked to advise people wanting to play the songs from the album, he added: ''Just have a good time and see what you can do with your own hands and your own voice. Ninety per cent of people won't be able to play these songs, but there'll be so many versions to hear on YouTube. In a way there'll be unlimited versions - it'll be an album with 1000 tracks.''

Beck is also working on some more conventional releases, and promises new music in 2013.

He added to NME magazine: ''There is music and its coming. I have this one record I started in 2008, it got put aside for a long time, but recently I've been mixing some of the songs. I'm not sure if they'll be singles, EPs or an album, but it will come out in some way and it sounds sonically adventurous.''

'Song Reader' is available now.
