Secret 7 Singles And Sleeve Art For Sale

By Paul Michael
29th April, 2012

 

The idea of Secret 7 is to invite seven bands / singers to provide a song. Artists from all over the UK were then invited to submit art inspired by the songs.  From the thousands of entries around 700 were displayed at an exhibition at Shoreditch, London. On Music Store Day – 21st April – the singles started selling with all proceeds going to a very worthy cause – the Teenage Cancer Trust. 

 

The musicians include The Cure, Florence and the The Machine, Bombay Bicycle Club, CSS, DJ Shadow, Noah & The Whale and Ben Howard. Some of the musicians provided artwork as well.

What made the event so exciting was that no-one knows the song within the sleeve. No-one knows the artist that designed the sleeve. As the name of the project implies, it is a Secret 7” inch single in a beautifully designed and truly unique sleeve.

Here’s the good news: not everyone could make it to London for the exhibition, and so there are lots of singles still to be sold, which have now been put onto eBay. If you want to track them down and be in with a chance of owning one, and helping a great charity, then head over to eBay.co.uk and in the search field, type:

‘Secret 7" Vinyl no’

There are just 5 days left (from today, 29th April), so get in quick. Happy bidding !
