It's not actually Sunday, so put the calendar away. Beck has this new thing going on called the Record Club, in which he covers an album from a band that I'm assuming he likes and asks lots of friends in the music world, including Nigel Godrich, to help him out. He'll be premiering a new song every week. Right now he is doing The Velvet Underground and Nico, and the first track is "Sunday Morning". I am staggered not only by how awesome this sounds, but by the fact that even Giovani Ribissi is involved with this. Watch the footage in all it's grainy glory above. Here is what Beck had to say about this track:
For this first edition, after lengthy deliberation and coming close to covering Digital Underground's Sex Packets, all present voted in favor of the 'other' Underground's The Velvet Underground & Nico. Participants included this time around are Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, Brian Lebarton, Bram Inscore, Yo, Giovanni Ribisi, Chris Holmes, and from Iceland, special guest Thorunn Magnusdottir, and myself. Thanks to everyone who helped put this together, and to all of you for indulging in this experiment. More soon.
