Primal Scream, London Grammar, Manic Street Preachers and Jeff Buckley all have songs used for this years Secret 7″ Project – with special sleeves designed by the likes of Jeremy Deller, Paul Smith, Polly Morgan and many more.
Now its sixth year, Secret 7″ will again see over 700 designers choose a track by one of seven selected artists, before designing a one-of- a kind sleeve design for a limited 7” vinyl release. Just 100 copies of each track will be pressed, with the identity of each record’s designer remains a mystery until it’s been purchased.
The likes of Sir Anish Kapoor, Sir Paul Smith, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Es Devlin, Rob Ryan, Jean Julian, Paul Simonon and hundreds more have all designed artwork for the project this year. See a selection of the sleeves below.
The seven tracks set for release via Secret 7″ are:
‘Lover, You Should’ve Come Over’ – Jeff Buckley
‘I’m Not Down’ – The Clash
‘I Saved The World Today’ – Eurythmics
‘Castles Made of Sand’ – Jimi Hendrix
‘Help’ – London Grammar
‘No Surface All Feeling’ – Manic Street Preachers
‘Damaged’ – Primal Scream
All records will be available to purchase for £50 on June 24 after being on display at a three week exhibition at The Jetty on Greenwich Peninsula in London. For more information, visit here.
All proceeds will be donated to the mental health charity MIND.
