10/04/06 - BECK Discusses New Album and Agrees to Headline the MTV Woodie Awards

Beck's newest release "The Information", hit stores this week, but during an interview with the BBC's Steve Lamacq, Beck says that "It started out painless, and ended up being painful. It's as if we made the album once, and we made it again, and we made it a third time." "We started the record in 2003, and we got together annually, the producer and I. We combed over everything, and got rid of the things we were tired of, the things that seemed trite."

The album was produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead's producer since 1997) and when asked about Godrich, Beck says "We work well together, because most of the time we're on the same channel and thinking the same things. I like working with him because he encourages me to do things that are less obvious, or [that] no one's going to get."

In other Beck news, it has been confirmed that he will headline the 3rd annual MTV Woodie Awards at New York's Roseland Ballroom on October 25th; the program will air on November 2nd on MTVU, MTV's college network, broadcasting to 750 colleges around the country. Other performers scheduled to appear are Imogen Heap, TV on the Radio and Gym Class Heroes.
