SECRET 7” RETURNS IN 2020 FOR ITS SEVENTH AND FINAL EVENT
GENERAL SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN – SECRET-7.COM
Secret 7”, the much loved anonymous charity record sleeve sale, will return for its seventh event in May at their new home at NOW Gallery on Greenwich Peninsula. Launched in 2012 by Kevin King and Jordan Stokes of creative agency Goodness, Secret 7” has to date sold 4200 unique records and raised over £215,000 for charitable causes over its illustrious history. In what will be its final year in the current format, Secret 7” will unite the worlds of music and art once again to support the work of Help Refugees - supporting the provision of food, clothing and shelter to refugees in 14 countries around the world.
The concept of Secret 7” is simple. Seven iconic tracks are pressed onto 7” vinyl, with each being limited to just 100 copies. Creatives around the world - from talented newcomers to some of the world’s greatest artists - submit sleeve artwork for the 700 records, creating one-of-a-kind collectables that appeal to hardcore fans, record collectors and art connosieurs alike.
The records will be exhibited at London’s NOW Gallery, Greenwich Peninsula’s cultural platform showcasing cutting edge art, design and fashion exhibitors, before they are made available to buy. The identities of their creators remain a secret until the record is in their new owner’s hands. Therein lies the secret.
Today, Secret 7” reveals the seven tracks for 2020:
Aretha Franklin - One Step Ahead
Bob Dylan - Blind Willie McTell
Foo Fighters - This Is A Call
Koffee - Toast
Miles Davis - Miles Runs The Voodoo Down
The Internet - Come Over
Vampire Weekend - Harmony Hall
The submission process for artists to be considered for this year’s edition is now live at www.secret-7.com. Submissions will remain open until 10th March 2020. Throughout its history, Secret 7” has attracted a wide variety of influential contributors. Participating musicians have included The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Lorde and Public Enemy, while artwork has been provided by the likes of Sir Peter Blake, Yoko Ono, Sir Paul Smith, and Jake and Dinos Chapman.
This will be the final Secret 7” event in its current guise.
