Fence men playing at one-off all-star performance of Beck's Song Reader

Excellent news, Fence fans: The Pictish Trail and James Yorkston have both been confirmed for the bill of the special one-off performance of Beck's sheet music album Song Reader taking place at The Barbican on July 4.

They're joining an impressive cast, including Beck himself, Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beth Orton, Joan As Policewoman, Villages, The Staves, Guillemots, Michael Kiwanuka and others, all performing their own interpretations of the album.

For tickets head here, and in the meantime have a watch of The Pictish Trail's new video for 'Wait Until' that we premiered earlier this week:
