Beck has enlisted artists such as Devendra Banhart and MGMT to recreate their albums in one day, as part of his upcoming online record store.

The new ‘Record Club’ will be a new feature for a revamped Beck website,

As Beck himself explains on his site: “An album will be chosen to be reinterpreted and used as a framework. Nothing rehearsed or arranged ahead of time. A track will be uploaded once a week on beck.com as well as through the web sites of those involved with the project.”

The first ‘release’ will be reinterpretations of Velvet Underground & Nico tracks, collaboraters onboard including Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich Beck’s musicians; drummer Joey Waronker, keyboardist Brian Lebarton and W.A.S.P founding member Chris Holmes amongst others.
