About this item

After announcing his forthcoming first solo album, ‘2013’, on Moshi Moshi records, Cate Le Bon collaborator and Royal Academy Of Music drop-out Meilyr Jones releases ‘How To Recognise A Work Of Art’ on 7”.

Recorded completely live with a full band this is a song about authenticity and forgery, of which Meilyr says: “I wrote the song about the preposterous world of art collectors, the panic of what is popular, what will succeed, telling people what to like, what to eat, and the recycling of pop culture. I also wanted to make something light and fun, and full of humour.”

‘How To Recognise A Work Of Art’ is about the obsession in our time with authenticity and the cult of the artist.
