"Legendary artist, composer and producer Van Dyke Parks has announced the launch of a unique series of 7" vinyl singles, the first new studio music in over 15 years since he released his acclaimed album Orange Crate Art. Each vinyl single (on his own label Bananastan) will be illustrated by some of the most important and remarkable modern artists of our time. The iconic musician, who has been at the heart of some of the great albums of the last 50 years including Brian Wilson's 'lost' masterpiece Smile, Randy Newman and Ry Cooder's first recordings and Joanna Newsom's critically acclaimed 2006 album YS, intends to release six new singles over the course of 2011. Parks has commissioned some of the top contemporary artists in America to illustrate each single with what he describes as 'a work of art that relates to the music within.' The first single to be released is the Art Spiegelman-illustrated Wall Street/ Money Is King."
