Only a limited edition of 100 12-inch vinyl pressings will be made of the artist’s debut song. The record will be released by Victorious Kiam Records. Each will be numbered and signed by the artist. What I think is cool is that the cover art will be designed by 10 of the UK’s most interesting artists (listed at the bottom of the jump).

It is part publicity play, part philosophical statement that music has value, despite the tendency to expect it for free.
