About this album

The Hour of Bewilderbeast is an album that was released by Badly Drawn Boy in 2000. The album won the 2000 Mercury Prize.

The cover art, produced by Andy Votel, is loosely based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawing “Vitruvian Man”. The original art also featured Woody Allen, however his picture had to be removed due to copyright issues.

Other modifications to the album include the removal of a selection of lyrics from track 12; Magic In the Air. The lyrics were replaced by an instrumental after hip hop artist Taja Sevelle claimed they were too similar to those in her first single.
