Beck is planning to release two new albums this year, one acoustic, and another, thought to be a full-on record

Beck is planning to release two new albums this year.

The 'Devil's Haircut' musician is working on a follow up to 2008's 'Modern Guilt' as well as an acoustic album, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

One completely new track, 'Defriended' has already appeared on the internet, but it is unknown if it will appear on either album.

Beck said last year he had gone back to working on some ideas he had started in 2008.

He said: "There is music and its coming. I have this one record I started in 2008, it got put aside for a long time, but recently I've been mixing some of the songs. I'm not sure if they'll be singles, EPs or an album, but it will come out in some way and it sounds sonically adventurous."

Beck's last musical project was 'Song Reader' which was a collection of sheet music. Fans from around the world were then encouraged to share their own interpretations and versions of the tracks.

So far Beck has yet to share his own versions of the tracks with the public, although he did concede he had asked Jack White his opinion on the project.

Beck said: "I'm curious to hear what other people do with the songs. I don't want to throw my hat in until later. I sent the songs to Jack White and he was very encouraging. He liked 'I'm Down'."
