Premiere: after representing Great Britain at the Venice Biennale, Jeremy Deller shares his cover of A Guy Called Gerald's 'Voodoo Ray'

Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller will release a limited 12″ showcasing the soundtrack to his new film work English Magic, which last week was exhibited at the Venice Biennale’s British Pavilion.

An annual international art exhibition – not quite the thinking man’s Eurovision, but not too far off – the Biennale saw Deller represent Great Britain with a collection of work inspired by, amongst other things, the country’s musical heritage.

On the English Magic EP, which marks Deller’s third release on The Vinyl Factory, he covers David Bowie’s ‘The Man Who Sold The World’, Vaughan Williams’ ‘Symphony in D Minor’ and A Guy Called Gerald’s classic ‘Voodoo Ray’, joined by South London steel band The Melodians Steel Orchestra. FACT are premiering the cover of ‘Voodoo Ray’ below; for more information or to pre-order English Magic click here.
