Beck Previewing New Songs On Acoustic Tour

PoMo troubadour kicks off modest outing August 2.

Before he releases his soulful, mellow new album on September 24, Beck will plug the material on a series of acoustic dates.

The low-key tour starts August 2 in Seattle with dates scheduled through August 25 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Fans can check out the chameleonic artist's new material before he hits the stage, as Beck is streaming one song from his still-untitled record each week on his Web site (www.beck.com). "The Golden Age" is the first track being made available (see "Beck Living After Midnite Vultures, Rocking With New Album").
