Records will be released for free on his website

Genre-hopping singer-songwriter Beck will cover a series of classic albums in just 24 hours and release them for free online.

Beck's Record Club will be launched soon and will release one song from each session a week, with a reworked version of the 1967 classic LP The Velvet Underground & Nico first in line.

The project will also feature collaborations with other artists including MGMT and Devendra Banhart.
