Digital Spy reports that an acoustic album is in the cards for singer–songwriter Beck. The musician plans to release this album later this year, while he plays a number of gigs this summer.
He is scheduled to perform a “special acoustic set” at the Days Off Festival in Paris on July 2. He will then play a gig in Wantagh, New York with Bob Dylan and Wilco on July 27.
Beck is scheduled to later appear at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island on July 28. In August he will play two full-band electric shows. He will play August 2 in Boston then in Brooklyn August 4.
A release on his upcoming album states that the record can be described as “a self-contained work, one that came in the form of a burst of inspiration.”
The artist told ABC.net in 2012 that with his LP - which he started in 2008 - he was “not trying to carve out some time from all the production work that I’m doing to finish those songs before they become relics from a lost era. It’s going on a half-decade old at this point.”
