He wrote his album '2' on the very couch
Mac DeMarco‘s old sofa has sold on eBay for over £3,000.
The item was put on the online auctioning site by Montreal’s Arbutus Records, who said that the musician wrote his breakthrough album ‘2’ on the very couch.
“Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to [own] a real collectable here: Mac DeMarco’s old couch, from when he lived in Montreal,” the listing read. “This has been living at the Arbutus Records loft for many years now, where Bisou the dog has slept on it every night, and we’re getting rid of it. Bisou will be sad to see it go”.
The item was eventually sold for 5,700 CAD ($4,477 USD/£3,414) after 101 bids. Proceeds are going to Rock Camp for Girls Montreal.

Mac DeMarco recently spoke to NME and gave his eight commandments for living a better life.
On why it’s important to have no shame, DeMarco said: “I’m not a very healthy eater. I don’t react well to diary or gluten, but I don’t give a shit. I’m like, “Gimme the pizza!” Well – you reap what sow. I eat that stuff all the time and then I’m on the can for, like, three hours. Drinking copious amounts of alcohol for the better part of a tour, that’s not gonna help at the back. But it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Sometimes you poop your pants. But it’s not, like, a lot. It’s just a very unhealthy little shart, you know what I mean?”
