Don't Act Like Your Heart Isn't Hard
Do We? We Do
Eyes That Say "I Love You"
Now That Your Dollar Bills Have Sprouted Wings
Please Leave A Light On When You Go
Rough On Rats
Why Did You Make Me Care?
America, Here's My Boy
We All Wear Cloaks
The Wolf Is On The Hill
Title Of This Song
The Last Polka
Last Night You Were A Dream
Complete with full-colour, heyday-of-home-play-inspired art for each song and a lavishly produced hardcover carrying case (and, when necessary, ukulele notation), Song Reader is an experiment in what an album can be in the 21st century. Beautifully illustrated by Marcel Dzama, Leanne Shapton, Josh Cochran, Jessica Hische and others, Song Reader has been designed by Beck with the help of McSweeney's for release in December 2012.
The twenty songs here, including two instrumentals, are as exciting as you'd expect from their author but if you want to hear 'Do We? We Do', or 'Don't Act Like Your Heart Isn't Hard', bringing them to life depends on you, the reader.
