Record sleeve design showcase Secret 7” launches its tracks for 2016 


Now in its fifth year, Secret 7” has just announced its chosen tracks for 2016. The project takes some of the best-known songs and asks creatives to design record sleeves which are then printed on special edition vinyl. Every year 700 sleeves are exhibited and sold for £50 each with nobody knowing whose sleeve they’ve bought or which song its for until they’ve paid. This year’s sleeve submissions will be for the following tracks:

Chvrches – Clearest Blue
Etta James – At Last

Jack Garratt – Worry

The Jam – Art School
John Lennon – Imagine
Max Richter – Dream 3
Tame Impala – The Less I Know The Better 

With charity at the heart of what it does, for 2016 Secret 7” is supporting Amnesty International UK: “Our choice of cause reflects our increasing distress at the goings on around the world,” it says. The project has taken up residence at a new location at Sonos Studio in Shoreditch.

Submissions close on Tuesday 2 March and the exhibition will take place from 8 April – 1 May 2016 at Sonos Studio.
