Presented by Metal, With A Little Help from My Friends is a new work by Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller. Inspired by the Beatles’ best friend Brian Epstein, the work is about friendship, loneliness and love.

By 1967 The Beatles were the most famous people in the world no doubt a totally alienating experience considering their youth, naturally they depended greatly on each other and on a few trusted friends for support.

The relationship between the individual and society is a powerful theme in the work of Jeremy Deller and in his response to this song, he has made two public art commissions that examine the nature of friendship and self-sacrifice, not just with those we know but also between strangers.
