The Unknown: Beck - Six Years

It's been six years since a proper Beck release.  Although there hasn't been an officially slated album, Beck has been rather busy over the past half decade putting out more material in just six years than he did in his previous 10 years.  Since 2008, Beck created his "Record Club" where he gave away five full length albums covering the likes of the Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, INXS, Skip Spence, and the legendary Yanni all for free.  He produced three albums for iconic artists Stephen Malkmus, Thurston Moore, and Charlotte Gainsbourg.  He also was the main songwriter behind Sex Bob-Omb, the fictional band from the cult classic film, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.  That's nine albums in six years.  But that's not all.  Beck's put out more than that.  He has soundtrack songs, B-sides, stand alone singles, duets, tributes, and compilation tracks, which come together to form a bonus never before heard album...until now.  In honor of Beck's formal return, here's a look back at what he's been doing up until now.
