Late Night Pick: Beck

Beck will be on Colbert Report tonight at 11:30 on Comedy Central. His "Song Reader" album will be released tomorrow. It was originally released last year in sheet music form only. Now it will actually get an album release with other artists doing the songs on the album, except for Beck himself on one song. Artists on the album include Fun., Tweedy, Norah Jones, Lord Huron, Jack White, David Johanson, Jason Isbell, Sparks, Jack Black, Loudon Wainwright III and others. After the sheet music came out, Beck encouraged people to record versions of the songs. Here's Max Miller's (featuring Rachel Roth) version of "Now That Your Dollar Bills Have Wings":

Here's the two songs Classixx did on Jimmy Kimmel Live Friday:
