Beck Enlists MGMT and Devendra to Help Cover Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne"

Longtime LA resident Leonard Cohen gets the covers treatment by LA native Beck this morning in the first installment of Beck's new "Songs of Leonard Cohen" cover project. You'll recall that the golden one attacked (and partially ruined) the Velvet Underground & Nico a few months back. (Marble-mouthed vocals didn't help "Heroin" at all, to say the least.)

For the first song on Songs of Leonard Cohen, Beck has enlisted MGMT and Devendra Banhart to help out. Is it any good? You decide. (It's early, and our ears can't digest all this yet.)
