I think the cost of my house insurance would be astronomical if I did win a Damien Hirst painting but what the hell, I'm going to enter this competition anyway.
Damien Hirst, the most successful British artist of his generation, is working with his friends the band The Hours: designing their record sleeves, art directing their videos and releasing their new album, See The Light, on his own specially-created label.
Great marketing strategy me thinks, as it sets the band apart from your average indie band. The Hours have had quite a bit of hype recently because of DH's involvement, good for them everyone needs a unique selling point, now has anyone heard one of their tracks?
The Observer Music Monthly is giving away one of 20 signed litho prints of the Damien Hirst artwork created especially for The Hours new album sleeve. To win get The Observer on Sunday 19 April and check out Observer Music Monthly in which they will reveal what you have to do to enter the competition to win the original artwork – valued at £125,000 – created by Damien himself. Everyone who registers will also get the chance to exclusively download the track These Days from The Hours' new album See The Light.
Worth a punt I reckon
