Singer/songwriter Beck is finally releasing a full studio version of his innovative sheet music album “Song Reader.”

The “Loser” hitmaker’s 2012 record was only available in sheet format with instructions so fans could play the tracks themselves.

Last year, he performed the album on stage in London for the first time, and enlisted his famous friends, including Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand, Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, Beth Orton, and Charlotte Gainsbourg to interpret his music.

Two years later, fans will now be able to buy the full recorded version of “Song Reader,” which includes more big-name talent.

Artists including Cocker, Jack White, Norah Jones, Juanes, Tweedy, and actor/rocker Jack Black have all contributed to the project.

“Song Reader” will be available for purchase starting on July 29.
