Julia Holter is a most intriguing artist; she continues to enthrall me.

Now a new double-sided single.

On one side her unique cover of “Don’t Make Me Over” made famous by Dionne Warwick in her debut in 1962, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

And “Hello Stranger”, a hit for Barbara Lewis and included on Julia’s album from 2013 Loud City Song.

In 2012 Beck released Song Reader, an album of only sheet music with the hope that musicians would perform and record their own interpretations of his songs.

We now have a recording of these 20 songs from the likes of Tweedy, Norah Jones, Lord Huron, Jack White, Laura Marling, Jarvis Cocker, David Johansen, Eleanor Friedberger, Sparks, Jack Black, and Beck himself.

Listen here to Laura Marling singing “Sorry” followed by Jarvis Cocker’s contribution “Eyes That Say ‘I Love You’”.
