Beck Reissue's 1994 Album With 16 New Songs!

For its 15th anniversary, Beck will reissue his 1994 album One Foot in the Grave on April 14th, with reportedly 16 additional songs tacked onto the original track list. Interscope Records will handle the reissue. The LP was originally distributed by K Records and recorded before — but released after — Beck’s breakthrough major label debut Mellow Gold.

The news of the reissue first appeared in Japanese paper Daily Yomiuri, which interviewed Beck before his tour of Japan this month. “Well, it’s been out of print for a few years, so it’s something we’ve been planning, but I knew that we had these extra tracks. I’ve actually been working on this for the past two or three years,” Beck told the newspaper. “[On] the original tapes there were an extra maybe 30 songs that weren’t on the record and I picked the best… and added them on there, so it’s got about a little over a dozen extra tracks that no one’s heard before.”
