Now that his SRO world tour has wrapped up at Las Vegas' Vegoose festival, Beck has announced the December 13 release of Guerolito, a remix companion to the critically lauded, gold-certified Guero.
An ambitious companion piece to the record The New Yorker said "sums up everything Beck is good at, like an imaginary greatest hits album," Guerolito features an eclectic line-up of artists handpicked by Beck to create Guero's multi-dimensional bizarro twin.
Additionally, Guero cover artist Marcel Dzama will be "remixing" the album's artwork, creating new variations on the distinctive and striking original package.
The track listing for Guerolito is as follows:
Ghost Range (E-Pro) - remix by Homelife
Que Onda Guero - remix by Islands
Girl - remix by Octet
Heaven Hammer (Missing) - remix by Air
Shake Shake Tambourine (Black Tambourine) - remix by Adrock (Beastie Boys)
Terremoto Tempo (Earthquake Weather) - remix by Mario C
Ghettochipp Malfunction (Hell Yes) - remix by 8-Bit
Broken Drum - remix by Boards of Canada
Scarecrow - remix by El-P
Wish Coin (Go It Alone) - remix by Diplo
Farewell Ride - remix by Subtle
Rental Car - remix by John King (Dust Brothers)
Emergency Exit - remix by Th' Corn Gangg
Simultaneously on December 13, the Guero Deluxe package will be released on UMD format in limited quantity.
Guero was released on March 29 and entered the Top 200 albums at #2, representing a one-weeksales high for the three-time Grammy winner. Guero's first single "E-Pro" was Beck's second #1 at Modern Rock, the first being "Loser" in 1994. Second single "Girl" and its mind-bending Al Jaffee/MAD magazine Fold-In themed video drew accolades from Entertainment Weekly's Must List, New York magazine's Approval Matrix, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone's Hot List Issue.
