Arthur Ashin (born in 1982)[1][2] is the American singer behind Autre Ne Veut.

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][5]


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

His debut album and the subsequent "Body EP" were recorded at home.[1][6]

His 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,[7] including Best New Music from Pitchfork.[8] Gorilla vs. Bear named Anxiety as "Album of Year (so far)" in June of 2013.[9]

In July of 2013, Arthur released a single titled "On & On"[10] as part of the Adult Swim Summer Singles series.[11]
