Beck has hinted that he could release two new albums in 2013.

The US star, who earlier this year released a 20-track album comprised of sheet music titled Song Reader, told NME that he could potentially release two more conventional records in the next twelve months.

“There is music and it’s coming!” he says. “I have this one record I started in 2008. It got put to the side for a long time but recently I’ve been mixing some of the songs. I’m not sure if they’ll be singles or EPs or an album but it’ll come out in some way and it sounds… sonically adventurous. I also have a record that I recorded last year in Nashville, which I may or may not finish.”

Beck’s last full studio album Modern Guilt was released in 2008.

Three new Beck tracks surfaced online earlier this year. The songs – titled ‘Cities’, ‘Touch The People’ and ‘Spiral Staircase’ – were written for the PlayStation 3 game Sound Shapes and the videos feature footage from the game.

Meanwhile, back in May, Beck released a one-off, Jack White-produced track, ‘I Just Started Hating Some People Today’, on White’s Third Man Records label. It also features the B-Side ‘Blue Randy’.
