on November 01, 2013, 9:53am


Beck may have a new album on the way, but he’s not quite ready to turn the page on Song Reader, his 2012 collection of sheet music. Over the summer, he performed the songs live for the first time in London. Now, Rolling Stone reports that Beck has announced another Song Reader performance for November 24th at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

Similar to his London performance, Beck will be accompanied by a cavalcade of special guests, including Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker,, Jenny Lewis, Childish Gambino, Jack Black, Van Dyke Parks, and actor-turned-musician John C. Reilly. What’s more, Beck’s father, David Campbell, will conduct the concert.

The concert is being presented by eyeglass company Warby Parker, and as part of their partnership, Beck has designed a pair of frames. Named Carmichael, they’ll be available for purchase in mid-November.

Below, watch Beck perform the Song Reader composition “Rough on Rats” in London:
