Accompanying Beck will be a brand new touring band, including the Grammy award winning producer and songwriter, Narada Michael Walden on drums, Rhonda Smith on bass and Jason Rebello on keyboards. Walden has collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Tom Jones. He was also featured on and composed four tracks for Beck's classic 1976 album Wired. The compelling Smith has played bass for Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Prince, while Rebello has performed previously with Beck, as well as Sting and Chaka Khan.
"I'm thrilled to be working with Narada Michael Walden, he's an inspiration to me," Beck said. "I've been lucky enough to have been working with Jason since 2006 and Rhonda came highly recommended by Narada; I was blown away when I heard her play."
