Beck Performed 'Song Reader' With Friends
Beck perfromed his 2012's "Song Reader" for the first time ever last night (July 4), Consequence of Sound reports.

"Song Reader" was released in December 2012 as individual pieces of sheet music. Fans keen to hear it should've played it themselves.

Now tracks from "Song Reader" have more traditional form. Beck spent Fourth of July at London's Barbican, where he performed the album live. He was joined by a number of high-profile guests, including Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand, Beth Orton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, the Mighty Boosh and more.

You can check out the fan-filmed footage of six songs below.

Here's the performance of "Don't Act Like Your Heart Isn't Hard:"

"I'm Down:"

Watch "Do We? We Do" performed with Joan Wasser and Conor J O'Brien here:

Here's "Why Did You Make Me Care" featuring Jarvis Cocker:

Watch "Just Noise" featuring Charlotte Gainsbourg here:

And here's the finale - "Rough on Rats" featuring everyone:
