Secret 7"

The artists creating the artwork for this year’s Secret 7″s project have been announced, and amongst them are names like Peter Blake, Yoko Ono, David Shrigley, Martin Parr, Paul Smith, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Modern Toss and Tatty Devine.

In total, 700 artists will each create a one-off sleeve design, into which will be popped one of seven singles by The Rolling Stones, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, St Vincent, Peter Gabriel or The Maccabees.

Each record and its sleeve will be available for sale for £50 (though you will know what sleeve you’re buying, the music will remain a mystery until such time you can get it on a turntable). They’ll be available on 4 May, following an exhibition at Somerset House from 10 Apr to 3 May.

Attendees of the exhibition will also be able to cut their own single in a vinyl-cutting booth, and there will be several events running alongside, including a screening of Chemical Brothers film ‘Don’t Think’ followed by a Q&A with director Adam Smith on 16 Apr.
