In Case You Missed it, Here's That Terrific Beck Remix of Philip Glass

In case you missed it, acclaimed composer Philip Glass has a remix album out on the 23rd of this month entitled Rework: Philip Glass Remixed. It's not a typical collection of remixes as it's built around 12 reimagined versions of his work from the likes of Dan Deacon, Tyondai Braxton, Cornelius, Beck, and more. One of the tracks that's received a bit of attention the past few days has been Beck's contribution, "NYC: 73-78." It's a 20 minute journey so rich in sonic detail and evolution it feels like watching the story of a person's life. Check it out below.

NPR is also offering a full stream of Rework: Philip Glass Remixed here.
