Beck Unveiling New Songs on 'Sound Shapes' Game
Beck is contributing three unreleased songs to the upcoming video game "Sound Shapes," developer Queasy Games announced on Wednesday. His tracks "Cities," "Touch the People" and "Spiral Staircase," will each soundtrack a level of the game.
"Sound Shapes" is due Aug. 7 on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The title will also include original music by deadmau5, I Am Robot and Proud and Jim Guthrie, who previously delved into gaming scores with the soundtrack to "Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP."
The musically oriented game will allow players to create increasingly complex beats via their achievements in a side-scrolling platformer. Users will be able to generate their own levels and music for the game, as well.
After a stint producing for artists such as Stephen Malkmus and Thurston Moore, Beck has turned his attention back to his own material recently, contributing to Childish Gambino's "Royalty" mixtape and releasing a single through Jack White's Third Man Records in May.
