Beck + INXS

With a decade separating the prime of these two pieces of ear candy, there was, until now, only one way you may have come to witness them grace the credits of the same track –a bedroom mash-up, beat-matched within a bunny whisker of obscurity by a nostalgic teen, with his Dad’s record collection and a cracked copy of Ableton.

Watch Beck’s Record Club in the studio covering INXS’ Kick (1987), by far their best album…except, of course, for INXS The Greatest Hits

Have you ever heard a sexier version of “Need You Tonight”?
Features Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and the Liars.

From a marketing stance, Beck has reached the ‘Snoop Dogg’ point of his career, where it’s no longer about releasing new albums to the same community of fans that already have his entire back catalogue. It’s about collaborating with new artists, exposing himself to new audiences and experimenting.
