Opus Fine Art announces signed screenprint editions from founding member of Squeeze, Chris Difford
These new prints feature lyrics from some of Chris Difford’s and Squeeze’s most memorable and best-loved songs.
LONDON.- Opus Fine Art has exclusively released a collection of six collectable signed screenprint editions from founding member of Squeeze, Chris Difford. These new prints feature lyrics from some of Chris Difford’s and Squeeze’s most memorable and best-loved songs, including Up The Junction, Woman’s World, Tempted and Is That Love.

The result of a collaboration between Chris Difford and designer Andrew Morrison and printed on Somerset Velvet paper, each print in this new collection measures 14.5 x 21.5 inches, and is from a numbered edition of 100, and signed by Chris Difford. Appealing to music fans and serious art collectors alike, each print is priced at just £100 (plus VAT where applicable), and is available to buy through www.opus-art.com.

Best known as a member of Squeeze, Chris Difford is considered one of Britain’s most celebrated and iconic lyricists. His timeless kitchen sink lyrics are classic stories which bring characters to life and turn the mundane into the beautiful. He has twice won the prestigious Ivor Novello award and continues to write not only for Squeeze but other contemporary musicians.

Emma Poole of Opus Fine Art said, ‘Chris Difford’s evocative lyrics have become part of Britain’s rich musical history, and they translate beautifully into our new prints. We’re extremely proud to have worked closely with Chris on these editions, and to offer them exclusively for sale through our website’.

Chris Difford is currently touring the US with Squeeze, which will be followed by a UK solo show with Norman Lovett, including a limited run at The Gilded Balloon Theatre during this year’s Edinburgh Festival.

Chris Difford
The double Ivor Novello winning, walking enigma that is Chris Difford, one half of the inimitable and timeless Squeeze: with his sometimes bewildering kitchen sink lyrics and urban folk stories, Difford has brought us characters and sketches from every day life, turning that mundane into the beautiful, the urbane into the exquisite, for over 30 years.

With his partner, collaborator, friend and Squeeze co-founder Glenn Tilbrook, Chris has written some of the most enduring and best-loved songs of our time. Up The Junction, Cool For Cats and Labeled With Love, to name but a few, all have their well earned places on recurrent play, in radio stations across the world. And Squeeze now enjoy a new generation of fans, with celebrity admirers such as Lily Allen and Mark Ronson and The Feeling.

Difford has released 3 critically acclaimed solo albums, toured relentlessly both inside and outside of Squeeze, and as one of the country’s most respected songwriters has co-written with a host of musicians and performers that reads as a veritable who’s who of the industry. One of his most recent co-writes appears on the best selling Ollie Murs album, proving Difford’s classic yet still contemporary touch.
