Beck will return this summer with an as-yet untitled 10-song set produced by Danger Mouse.

The album will be released on Interscope in North America and on XL Records in the rest of the world, although no official street date has been announced. Speculation abounds that the album could appear at any time, in a similar fashion to the way The Raconteurs released "Consolers of the Lonely" in March.

No song titles for the new Beck set have yet been confirmed, but there is speculation that Cat Power guests on one of the tracks.

2007 saw Beck release a lone single, "Time Bomb," which was nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance" category. 2006's "The Information" peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200.

Live dates are currently being fleshed out, with a headline appearance confirmed for Sept. 20 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, with Spoon and MGMT also slated to perform. Beck also has some festival appearances on his summer calendar, including San Francisco's Outside Lands, Bumbershoot and Austin City Limits.
