Beck - "Michelangelo Antonioni"
Beck has always been a bit of a strange one. He’s releasing his new album, Hansen’s Song Reader, via book (yep, those things made of paper). It’s going to be the first LP not to be issued on CD, vinyl or MP3—but as sheet music (WTF?). Basically, you can pick up a guitar, don some sunglasses, swallow some pills, and pretend to be Beck whilst strumming your way through his booklet.
Anyway, he’s released this hauntingly beautiful cover of Brazilian composer Caetano Veloso’s "Michelangeo Antonioni." It’s the sort of stuff that I’d imagine to soundtrack ghoulish nightmare dreams involving water and moonlight. It’s also devastatingly alluring.
Beck, why are you so great?
