In a true feat of musical multitasking, Beck performed covers of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" and T. Rex's "Bang A Gong (Get It On)" while playing his own song, "Scarecrow," during a performance last night at the Days Off Festival in Paris. Although Beck is known for his covers, playing three songs at once represents new territory even for him. Listen to the master at work in the fan-filmed video above, via Spin.

Beck's next shows will be two acoustic performances in the UK: July 6th at the Cambridge Corn Exchange and July 7th at London's Union Chapel. Tickets for both shows are on sale now, but the Union Chapel date is sold out. While he's clearly been putting in a lot of work onstage, Beck has also been busy in the studio. He's just released the singles "Defriended" and "I Won't Be Long" on 12" vinyl. There's a free stream of "I Won't Be Long" available as well.
