Watch Beck perform from his <em>Song Reader</em> for the first time

Mr. Hansen plays ‘Sorry’ and ‘Heaven’s Ladder’ at Santa Cruz, California’s Rio Theatre.

On July 4, Beck will bring together Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand, Beth Orton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and more for a performance of his 108-page Song Reader at London’s Barbican. Until then, fans of the avant rocker will have to subsist on these fan-shot videos recorded at last night’s concert in Santa Cruz, CA.

Watch the clips below. Along with the Barbican performance, Beck has announced plans for a new acoustic LP. The album was reportedly laid down in a “burst of inspiration” following the Song Reader sessions, and is a “self-contained work.”
