Beck Covers Velvet Underground


File this under "super-friggin'-awesome". Beck and his musical pals have decided to rerecord Velvet Underground's debut LP, Velvet Underground & Nico, in its entirety, releasing the tracks one by one over the course of the next few weeks. Naturally, they started out with "Sunday Morning", a track I occasionally listen to on... Sunday mornings. The project is called Record Club. According to Beck's website, they were initially gonna cover Digital Underground's Sex Packets. I'm still not so sure if that was a joke or not...

Yes, if you didn't know by now, I'm a fan of Velvet Underground.

  3. I was wondering the same thing! I wouldn't be surprised if they packaged it as a promo album after all the tracks are released online.
