Besides his work in bands like Pavement and Silver Jews, Stephen Malkmus has dipped his hands into seemingly every corner of the music world—lending his effortlessly cool persona to projects ranging from film soundtracks to various collaborations.
After finishing up a wildly successful tour with Pavement, Malkmus is gearing up to perform with another one of his bands, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. Malkmus just announced (via Mojo ) that jack-of-all-trades artist/producer Beck is slated to participate in the creation of their newest album, which is expected to be released next year. Matador has since confirmed the news.
Both Malkmus and Beck are known for leading their respective genres, so it goes with saying that their collaboration is expected to deliver nothing less than stellar results. Now the question is, what should we expect? A mash-up of “Gold Soundz” and “Black Tambourine?”
