But you have to win a competition first...

BADLY DRAWN BOY is to record a song written by the fan who wins a competition to “find the golden fish,” to mark his new album ‘HAVE YOU FED THE FISH?’ going into the charts at Number Ten on Sunday (November 10).

The competition takes the form of a “hunt the fish” game, and the winner will get either a song, piece of poetry or other writing set to music and recorded by Badly Drawn Boy.

For details of how to enter, see his record label’s website,
