Beck Reveals "One Foot in the Grave" Deluxe Reissue Track List

April 9, 2009 4:37 PM ET

As Rock Daily reported last week, Beck will reissue his 1994 slacker folk album One Foot in the Grave on April 14th.  Now, a mere week before it hits shelves, we have a track list. In addition to the album's 16 songs, a second disc boasts an additional 16 tracks, 13 of which have never been officially released. One Foot, recorded before but released four months after Beck's breakthrough Mellow Gold, will be re-released through Beck's own label ILIAD and distributed by Universal (a rep has clarified that it is not affiliated with Interscope Records) after initially being issued by K Records. The CD and digital release will be available in stores and on Beck.com; a vinyl release is imminent.

"I've actually been working on this for the past two or three years," Beck told the Daily Yomiuri in March. "[On] the original tapes there were an extra maybe 30 songs that weren't on the record and I picked the best... and added them on there, so it's got about a little over a dozen extra tracks that no one's heard before." To see which dozen extra tracks that no one's heard before made the final track list, check below:

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
