Secret 7” is the annual project that brings music and art together for a good cause. This year the exhibition takes place throughout April at Somerset House.
The project takes seven records from seven artists, prints 100 vinyl records for each and asks 700 contributors to create a unique record sleeve for each.
This year, notable contributors include Sir Peter Blake, Yoko Ono, Julian Opie, David Shrigley, Martin Parr, Sir Paul Smith, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Urs Fischer, Bob & Roberta Smith, Modern Toss, Tatty Devine, Paul Insect, Bompas and Parr.
The records this year are: The Rolling Stones – Dead Flowers; Diana Ross & The Supremes – Reflections; Underworld – Born Slippy (Nuxx); The Chemical Brothers – Let Forever Be; St Vincent – Digital Witness; Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer; The Maccabees – Go.
On 4 May, all the sleeves go on sale for the uniform price of £50 to the general public. The only catch is that the buyer won’t know who the record is by or who has designed the sleeve until they have parted with their cash.
The queue this year will be capped at a 24 hour wait, so if you want a one-of-a-kind vinyl, then expect to get there early.
