Beck's 'I Only Have Eyes For You' Cover (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Beck once again proved his talent as a multifaceted musician by covering "I Only Have Eyes for You" by the Flamingos.

The track is gorgeous and a true dedication to the 1959 doo wop original. There is a hint of lo-fi with washed out vocals and instrumentals, akin to the recording techniques back in the day.

The cover is a part of multimedia artist Doug Aitken's "SONG 1" light installation project at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington D.C. Along with Beck, artists like Devendra Banhart and James Murphy took a spin at "I Only Have Eyes for You" for the project as well.

Beck seems to be in cover-mode lately. Today, his rendition of the 1928 song "Corrina, Corrina," for Christy Turlington's collaboration album with Every Mother Counts, was also released.
