Secret 7″ / March 8th, 2012

Just finished off my submission for Secret 7” which is an exciting project combining music and art for designers, all in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

The projects aim is to rekindle some of the excitement for vinyl sleeve art in the digital era by exploring how a track would be interpreted by a variety of different artists.

Between the 18th and the 22nd April through Record Store Day, the Idea Generation gallery in Shoreditch will exhibit 700 unique seven-inch sleeves inspired by the music of The Cure, Florence + The Machine, Bombay Bicycle Club, CSS, DJ Shadow, Noah & The Whale and Ben Howard.

Each of these one-offs will go on sale at around £40 each – only after purchase will the buyer find out whose creations they have bought.

Every penny profited from the sale of these exclusive vinyl records is going to Teenage Cancer Trust.

I guess it would be remiss of me to reveal which artist I have chosen until the exhibition has finished but it would be fun to have a few people guess which one it might be.

You can listen to all of the tracks on www.secret-7.com
