Waiting for the cover: Beck airs a cover of The Velvet Underground

He’s taken on ‘I’m Waiting For The Man’ for Spotify.

Last year Beck released his buoyant latest album ‘Colors’ and has been popping up on telly and touring the record pretty much ever since.

He took a bit of time though to Spotify studios though, and he’s now shared his contribution to their series ‘Music Happens Here’. It’s a cover of The Velvet Underground’s classic ‘I’m Waiting For The Man’ and it’s a version that stays relatively faithful to the original, with his own laid-back vocals taking centre-stage. It’s filled with driving, twanging guitars and percussion, a few harmonies and a couple of slightly off-kilter moments that give it a bit of a twist.

Beck recently partied with pups in his dog-laden video for ‘Fix Me’. He’s also set to head to We Love Green and All Points East this year, as well as playing a massive Dublin show with Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
