The Chills have just released one of New Zealand’s most expensive albums. Something Beautiful, a limited edition collection of live recordings, will set you back NZ$6,500.  The hefty price tag is due in part to the inclusion of a mixed media screen print in each of the 150 copies by painter Shane Cotton, with each print featuring a different lyric from the album.  “I think Shane Cotton’s prints are beautiful and powerful” says Chills frontman Martin Phillips. “They contain many elements of the physical impact of this land’s presence on our national and personal psyche which is something I relate to, having explored some similar themes through my music”.

Something Beautiful is the first in a series of music/art collaborations spearheaded by Far South Editions.
