| The show's creator/executive producer Josh Schwartz said, "After hearing the new Beck album, both Alexandra Patsavas (music supervisor) and I felt there were too many good songs to choose just one. So instead we came up with the idea of a "Beckisode". We're really honored to be associated with one of the true and enduring artists in music today". |
