In order to sell more cars, Lincoln decided to enlist Beck, and paid for him to "reimagine" David Bowie's "Sound and Vision," for some reason. And reimagine it he did, orchestrating a new version that features over 160 musicians, including, according to Pitchfork:
the Dap-Kings, a string orchestra, a gamelan ensemble, members of the USC marching band, a Peruvian charango group, choirs, guitarists, a musical saw player, a harpist, and a theremin player.
With their help, Beck breaks down the song into a vast array of constituents parts, and then suddenly puts it back together again.
Pitchfork notes that Beck's dad, David Campbell, served as the conductor.
