Full list of artists revealed as we chat to Alex Chinneck, Fred Butler, Pete Fowler and Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood about their work.
With less than a month to go until Record Store Day and the opening of Secret 7″ exhibition in London, the art and music initiative has released the full list of artists who will each be responsible for producing one of 700 unique 7″ record sleeves for seven different singles. You can read more about the music, which will feature Massive Attack, Lorde and Roxy Music in an eclectic line-up here.
On show from the 12th and 13th April Downstairs At Mother in East London before they are sold for £45 a piece to the public on Record Store Day to raise money for War Child, the impressive roster of participating artists will once again see established names rub shoulders with emerging talents, with the Chapman Brothers, Paul Smith, Jeremy Deller and Antony Gormley among the most high-profile contributors.
Radiohead in-house artist Stanley Donwood will also be offering up a sleeve, and he was among four artists including Alex Chinneck, Fred Butler, Pete Fowler interviewed by The Vinyl Factory about their involvement in the project.
