The Song:

We first learned about "Touch The People" when it was registered into the copyright database at the end of 2011 or so. Then in the summer of 2012, it was revealed that it was a song to be part of a video game called Sound Shapes (along with the tracks "Spiral Staircase" and "Cities").

My understanding is that each song is somehow its own level for the game, which allows players "to create increasingly complex beats via their achievements." I do not know if this means that every player will essentially create their own remix of these songs, or if there is a set, more final Beck version.

There is no final Beck version of the song released at this point. What we do have is a series of loops and things that you can put together via the game to create your own version of the song.
