Arthur Ashin (born 20 April 1982),[1][2] better known by his stage name Autre Ne Veut, is an American singer-songwriter and musician from New York City.

The name Autre Ne Veut is taken from an inscription in French on a 15th-century British dress ornament that is stored at The Cloisters and is translated to English as "I want no other."[3][4]

Biography[edit]

Ashin graduated from Hampshire College,[1] where he lived with Daniel Lopatin (later of Oneohtrix Point Never).

Ashin's debut album and the subsequent "Body EP" were recorded at home.[1][5]

Autre Ne Veut in 2013

Ashin's second album, Anxiety, released in 2013, was self-produced as well, but this time it was recorded in a studio with contributions from Ford & Lopatin.[2] Anxiety was met with critical acclaim,[6] including Best New Music from Pitchfork.[7] Gorilla vs. Bear named Anxiety as "Album of Year (so far)" in June 2013.[8]

In July 2013, Ashin released a single titled "On & On"[9] as part of the Adult Swim Summer Singles series.[10]
