BECK ANNOUNCES U.S. TOUR DATES
NEW ALBUM MODERN GUILT IN STORES NOW / VINYL EDITION TO BE RELEASED JULY 22
Beck has announced a series of U.S. tour dates to follow his previously announced summer festival appearances. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of Beck's new album Modern Guilt, which Beck co-produced with Danger Mouse. Modern Guilt has already been declared a more-than-worthy addition to Beck's discography - USA Today called the album "retro-contemporary fusion for the ages," while Time calls the music "a joy... giddy retro-futurism."
As always, Beck's creativity extends into the presentation of his music. The vinyl edition of Modern Guilt, which will be in stores July 22, includes download codes for high-fidelity (320 kbps) MP3s produced from a playback of the vinyl master. In other words, the first MP3 starts with a needle drop, and the ten MP3s will sound like a vinyl playback. Leave it to Beck to invent the first mobile turntable.
See below for Beck's U.S. summer/fall tour itinerary. Tickets for these new dates will go on sale the weekend of July 18/19, except for Kansas City which will go on sale Monday July 21. See Beck.com for more information on ticket sales.
