Design artwork for Nick Drake
Secret 7’’ are inviting creatives from around the globe to take inspiration from Nick Drake's track, Rider On The Wheel and design an original 7 inch vinyl sleeve. Between 30-50 winners will be selected. One copy of each design will be produced and exhibited in East London for over a week in April.
The project culminates on Record Store Day when the 700 one-of-a-kind vinyl will be available to purchase, with all of the profits going to the charity Art Against Knives. None of the buyers will know who created the sleeve, or even which song it's for, until they are holding it in their hands - the secret lies within.
Check out the other artists part of the Secret 7'' project: Public Enemy, Elton John, Jessie Ware, HAIM, Nas and Laura Marling.
Nick Drake’s legacy may, in one sense, be huge. But there’s painfully little of it: just three complete albums between 1969 and 1972 – and a final quintet of songs recorded shortly before his death. Rider On The Wheel comes from that final recording.
30-50 designs will be selected by and printed on a Secret 7’’ vinyl sleeve which will be exhibited and sold at the gallery.
Each winner will also receive:
