"Austin City Limits" will feature Beck, whose new album "Morning Phase" debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard album charts upon its late-February release, in an April 27 taping at ACL Live.
ACL will announce ticket giveaway details soon through the show’s website and its social media outlets. It’s the second appearance on the show for Beck, who appeared in 2002 in conjunction with his "Sea Change" album. April marks the beginning of tapings for the 40th season of the renowned PBS series produced by local affiliate KLRU. The Beck taping follows an April 14 session with Los Lobos. Previously announced tapings include Valerie June on May 28, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds on July 20, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down on Aug. 14 and Eric Church on Sept. 23.

Carey at 6:30 p.m. in support of his new Jagjaguwar release "Range of Light." Gospel group the Jones Family Singers appear April 11 at 5 p.m. for their Arts + Labor album "The Spirit Speaks."
April 19 is Record Store Day, and local psych-rockers the Black Angels will be in-house at 5 p.m. to celebrate their seven-song, 10-inch clear vinyl release "Clear Lake Forest." And on May 1, Southern rockers the Drive-By Truckers roll in for a 5 p.m. set to support their new ATO Records album "English Oceans."
