Secret 7” is an exhibition where the worlds of music and art collaborate to produce 700 one-of-a-kind 7” singles for a good cause, this year to benefit Help Refugees. Creatives around the world – from emerging talent to some of the world’s greatest artists – have submitted sleeve artwork for 700 records to create one-of-a-kind collectables that appeal to hardcore fans, record collectors and art lovers alike. The tracks for this year’s edition of Secret 7” span a variety of genres and 54 years of music history, from all-time classics by the likes of Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan to more recent releases from Koffee and Vampire Weekend. From 14 October – 1 November Secret 7” will exhibit all the artwork at NOW Gallery on Greenwich Peninsula in London, all 700 records will be sold via auction on the final day. We are excited to be the exclusive Secret 7” media supporter once again and will be helping to extend the exhibition outside the gallery space to feature the 700 artwork sleeves on our poster sites across London for two weeks.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Secret 7” co-founder Kevin King about the incredible project, how it’s grown over the years and find out what’s next.
