Beck puts One Foot in the Grave again…

Let’s face it, Beck is not only a musician, he’s a savvy entrepreneur. After all, between last year’s trendy Modern Guilt and the ensuing tour that hit all the right markets, the slinky songwriter ensures his fan base gets the best bang for their buck. He’s not skipping a beat in 2009, either.

Due out April 14th, the re-issue of Beck’s 1994 folk record, One Foot in the Grave, will finally see the light of day again thanks to Interscope. This should be a treat to any fan, considering the album, originally put out through K Records, has been out of print for quite some time. But, what would a re-issue be these days without some goodies to go along with it, and for that Beck’s the man.

“Well, it’s been out of print for a few years, so it’s something we’ve been planning, but I knew that we had these extra tracks. I’ve actually been working on this for the past two or three years,” Beck stated in an interview with the Daily Yomiuri. “[On] the original tapes there were an extra maybe 30 songs that weren’t on the record and I picked the best… and added them on there, so it’s got about a little over a dozen extra tracks that no one’s heard before.”

Fans can trust his word on “the best,” and judging from the already released track listing (after the jump), no one should be sweating. So, in addition to Pearl Jam’s already released re-issue of Ten and the upcoming Beastie Boys collection, everyone should be enjoying a nice little spending spree — after all, what else are those tax returns good for, right?
