As in previous outings, seven tracks by iconic musicians are pressed in 7″ runs limited to 100 copies. Each record features a one-of-a-kind sleeve, with 700 different artists — ranging from high profile figures to emerging talents — contributing designs.
For the final instalment, tracks by Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, Koffee, Miles Davis, The Internet, and Vampire Weekend have been adorned with work by artists including Turner Prize-winnner Jeremy Deller, Lubaina Himid, Anish Kapoor, Ragnar Kjartansson, Tacita Dean, and Unskilled Worker.
All 700 records will be displayed in a free exhibition at Greenwich Peninsula’s NOW Gallery from the 14th October to the 1st November, before being auctioned online via eBay. As on past occasions, buyers won’t find out who created which artwork, or which song it’s for, until after placing their winning bid.
All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Help Refugees, with organisers hoping to hit a final fund target of £250,000.
