The Vinyl Factory has collaborated with legendary creative director and  British artist Scott King to release his first record, an art-world send  up and celebrity satire called ‘You’re My Favorite Artist’.

Invited  to make a record by The Vinyl Factory, Scott King recruited old friend  James Fry (Earl Brutus), producer Tim Larcombe and singer Polly Martyn  to create a song based on a real experience King had in New York.

‘You’re  My Favorite Artist’ is a dance track with a difference, a bitter and  sweeping comment on celebrity, success and ‘phoniness’ in the art world.  The sleeve is an imagined and glowing review of ‘You’re My Favorite  Artist’ from New York art bible Artforum – an excitable hack fawning  over King’s ‘new sound work’ in a world defined by pretentious art  dinners, charity events and celebrity suck up.
