Martin Creed | Understanding
Martin Creed will release his new album Thoughts Lined Up through Telephone Records on the 8th of July. Recorded at ArtSpace, Brixton, the album will be available on LP, Limited Edition LP, CD and as a download. The record features 24 songs but clocks in at only 43 minutes.
The video for the first single, "Understanding" was released this week. The song shares the same title as the recently unveiled sculpture Understanding (Work no. 2630), a 25 foot tall rotating neon. Commissioned by the Public Art Fund, the work is on view until October 23 at Pier 6, Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York.
"I want to be understood," says Creed, "That’s what everybody wants".
