And Finally Artist News Gigs & Festivals Releases

Beck selling copies of new album that are signed… by MC Hammer

Beck is selling signed copies of his forthcoming new album, ‘Colors’. Nothing out of the ordinary there. Except these records are signed not by Beck, but by MC Hammer.

Due out this Friday, the album, we should stress, features no input from the 90s rapper whatsoever. But who says the person who writes their name on your CD has to be the person who made it? I’ll write my name on all of your CDs this afternoon, if you want. Although, I admit, having MC Hammer write on one of your CDs is probably slightly better.

In a statement, MC Hammer said: “‘Colors’ is a great party record”. All the more so if he’s signed the front of it, presumably. Pre-orders of the signed copies of the album are only available in the US. Excluding California. Which seems particularly hard on Californians.

In other Beck news, the musician having played the 200 capacity Omeara in London as a secret show on Sunday night, he’s now announced that he will play the slightly bigger Electric Ballroom in Camden on Thursday night.
