We all know that Beck is prolific - he covers albums in a day, helps produce records by Stephen Malkmus and Jamie Lidell, is on the new Twilight soundtrack - but such is his work rate that some amazing things are being lost amongst the sheer weight of his workload.
We know next to nothing about Tobacco - only that it's, like, super-bad for you - but whoever he is, he's got some stellar connections. Beck adds his mumbled brand of nonsense beat poetry to the charmingly haphazard, 'Fresh Hex'.
Beck also appears on another track on Tobacco's forthcoming album, Maniac Meat, and it's called 'Grape Aerosmith'. Nice.
