A couple weeks ago, we posted a sneak peak of the first track from the latest full-album cover by Beck’s online project Record Club: “Guns in the Sky,” the opening song off INXS’ 1987 smash Kick. Now comes Track 2: “New Sensation,” covered again by Beck and a crew featuring members of St. Vincent, Liars and Os Mutantes. The ad-hoc group gives the hit single a dreamy, acoustic makeover, complete with violin and vocals from St. Vincent’s Annie Clark and Liars’ Angus Andrew (who selected Kick in the first place). Watch for a new song each week.
