Beck sings Velvet Underground

This is a really good way for a musician to engage with fans, even when he has no new music or shows.

Beck has been recording tracks from the Velvet Underground and Nico album with friends, in order, and uploading videos to his site. The whole album was recorded in a day, with minimal rehearsal, and one track is uploaded each week. So far three songs - Sunday Morning, I'm Waiting For The Man, and Femme Fatale.

Also on his site, this conversation between Beck and Tom Waits, and Planned Obsolescence, a weekly mixtape.

It's so disappointing that he's a scientologist though.

Sure would like to hear Beck do a version of my favorite:
