deluxe Odelay official release date and tracklist

Odeluxe January 29th woot


On January 29th, Beck will release a double-disc deluxe version of his 1996 album Odelay that includes sixteen B-sides and compilation tracks that haven’t seen U.S. release before, as well as two never-before-released songs from the album’s original sessions produced by the Dust Brothers: “Inferno” and “Gold Chains.” The second disc also includes remixes by Aphex Twin, Mario Caldato Jr. and U.N.K.L.E., plus “Burro,” a Spanish-language rendition of “Jackass” recorded with a mariachi band.

Woo! Inferno! Yes! Gold Chains? Ok, cool!

I’m hoping there’s more new stuff than that (original Debra?), but I’m happy enough that we finally get Inferno.



Disc One of “Odelay – Deluxe Edition” adds to that original album two never before heard Dust Brothers-produced tracks from the “Odelay” sessions, “Inferno” and “Gold Chains,” and “Deadweight” from the film “A Life Less Ordinary.” Disc Two’s 16 selections include “Thunder Peel,” co-produced by Mario Caldato Jr.; the U.N.K.L.E. (featuring James Lavelle) remix of “Where It’s At,” and Aphex Twin and Mickey P. remixes of “Devil’s Haircut” (titled “Richard’s Hairpiece” and “American Wasteland,” respectively). Also heard are the once international-only b-sides “Clock,” “Electric Music and The Summer People,” “Lemonade,” “SA-5,” “Feather In Your Cap,” “Erase The Sun,” “000.000,” “Brother,” “Trouble All My Days,” “Strange Invitation,” “Devil Got My Woman,” (a cover of the Skip James classic recorded at the original Sun Studios in Memphis before they closed their doors) and “Burro” — a Spanish language version of “Jackass” recorded with a mariachi band.

That pretty much covers the whole tracklist, so it looks like the only new material is Inferno and Gold Chains. I guess we’ll have to keep waiting on that original Debra track.

    Cool thanks for the info, I hope these 2 songs arent just noise and feedback. Trouble seems more like a mellow gold b-side, could this be another version?
    Too bad makeout city’s not on there it’s one of my favorite remixes.

  2. Newtron Bomb says:

    – Inferno is supposedly the best song ever, but I have no idea about Gold Chains. I’m guessing it’ll be more than just noise and feedback (though if it’s Lemonade or .000.000 noise and feedback, I’m all for it!)

    – Trouble All My Days does seem to be the odd man out. It was on Golden Feelings, but it did also show up on Devils Haircut singles. I’m assuming it’ll be the same version we know and love, but here’s hoping I’m wrong!

    – Totally agree about Makeout City

    Looks like I will have to keep my old version of Odelay if Diskobox is left off the new edition. Are Beck and Jon Spencer still feuding?

    Holy bejeezus the 29th is my Birthday! Thank you Beck! I can’t wait.

  5. Ryann Rowland says:

    So is this going to be “remastered” (compressed and hard limited into oblivion, resulting in terrible sound quality)?

    I will be extremely happy if it hasn’t been remastered or if the remaster is actually good, although I’m not holding my breath on that one.

  6. Ian Warner says:

    i’m sure beck wouldn’t let the record be released sounding horrible… and why does it need remastering? besides, i think its sposed to sound sorta not-so-hi-fi, hence the record scratches throughout the album…

  7. Erik Johnson says:

    Beck, i’ve been a fan of your music for over 12 years now and have a major part of my iTunes dedicated to you. I was actually hoping for an actual new album not a remix cd filled with static and noise.
