Listen to the 15-Minute Version of Beck's "I Won't Be Long" ft. Kim Gordon

As previously reported, when purchases of the new Beck single, “I Won’t Be Long,” arrived today, a nearly 15-minute mix of the track accompanied the previously heard version.

1077 The End points out that this extended cut also offers a surprise guest, former Sonic Youth member Kim Gordon. Gordon contributes “spoken vocals” that appear after the nine-minute mark, adding some of that ghostly effect that has been present on recordings of her old band.

Also, the long version is just a great listen, with long ambient electronic portions and plenty of mood shifts. It leaves little doubt that Beck’s in a creative mental state, and that state appears to reaping great rewards.

Listen at The End and get the single here. Beck has two new albums on the way and a summer tour, while Gordon has a new album with her project, Kim Gordon’s Body/Head, due on September 10.
