In 2006, Beck joined George on The Hour to talk about his then-new album The Information, a record he described as "painful" to make. They also talked about his growing back catalogue, musical medleys and Scientology.

"My dad's been doing it for about 40 years, so it's part of the landscape of my family," Beck said of Scientology, before mentioning some of the other spiritual influences in his life. "And my grandfather was a Presbyterian minister, my mother was Jewish. She raised us with Passover and all that. My step-father's Roman Catholic. And I grew up in a Mexican neighbourhood. I spent a lot of time in Japan, going to temples and all that."
