Including a collaboration with Jon Spencer...

Beck he revealed that entire album projects could have been devoured by the Universal Studios fire.

The blaze destroyed the master copies of many famous albums, damaging material from the likes of R.E.M., Hole, Nirvana, and many more.

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, Beck explained that he believes the fire has severely damaged his catalogue.

Insisting that his management "still won’t tell me what was lost", he added: "I have a feeling that my management is not telling me because they can’t bear to break the news".

The projects that were seemingly lost include a double album of Hank Williams' covers recorded in 2001, and a full project with The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion from the mid 90s.

"I went to Nashville on tour for two days and cut a country album that never got released," he explained. "I have rock albums I did in the 1990s. Before I did 'Odelay', I went and tried to make an indie-rock album, so there’s an album that sounds like a Pavement, Sebadoh kind of thing. ... Nobody’s telling us anything."

Fingers crossed, Beck.

Beck's new album 'Hyperspace' is out now.
