SECRET 7” IS AN ANNUAL EVENT THAT COMBINES MUSIC AND ART FOR A GOOD CAUSE.

We take 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. We then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style for every 7”. 700 sleeves are exhibited and then sold for £50 apiece. You don't know who created the sleeve, or even which song it's for, until you have parted with your cash - the secret lies within.

THIS YEAR OUR CHARITY IS NORDOFF ROBBINS, WHO ARE DEDICATED TO TRANSFORMING LIVES OF VULNERABLE CHILDREN AND ADULTS THROUGH MUSIC THERAPY.

Nordoff Robbins work with people with a range of challenges such as autism, dementia, depression and physical and learning disabilities. The therapy they provide helps many to communicate where they have struggled to do so previously. The results can have a profound impact on individuals, their families and all those around them. They carry out their work in their own music therapy centres, in schools, community centres, hospitals and care homes. They also train music therapists through their own Masters degree programme. We are delighted to support Nordoff Robbins in 2015.

We have a brand
new home at
somerset house.

The spectacular neo-classical building in the heart of London will host our biggest show yet, as we expand the number of days you can view the collection of masterpieces before they scatter to their new homes. During the exhibition we'll be hosting a series of special events. Details about these events and our sale day will be released in March.

Let Forever Be

The Chemical
Brothers

S722

Released in 1999 this track features vocals from Noel Gallagher - who also co-wrote it - and has a mesmerising music video directed by the one and only Michel Gondry.

Reflections

Diana Ross &
the supremes

S723

Our first release from the wonderful world of Motown and the band's first with Diana as the main billing in 1967. This is an extended stereo version of the psychedelic pop single that has never been pressed to vinyl.

Go

The Maccabees

Taken from this London band's critically acclaimed third album Given To The Wild. It will be the fifth and final single taken from it, ahead of the release of a new album in 2015.

Sledgehammer

Peter Gabriel

S725

Apparently this song is all about sex. It's influential stop motion video that accompanied the track's original release in 1986 is an all time great, and we shall be pressing the video edit audio.

Dead Flowers

The Rolling Stones

S726

From arguably the bands' greatest ever record Sticky Fingers. Released in 1971 it is housed in the iconic artwork conceived by Andy Warhol. This will be the first time the track has been released as a 7”.

Digital Witness

St Vincent

S727

The lead single from her recent album which was crowned album of 2014 by many, including The Guardian, The Sunday Time and NME.

Born Slippy (nuxx)

Underworld

S728

Originally a B-side to Born Slippy, the remix shot to fame in 1996 when it soundtracked the final scene in the movie Trainspotting. We are working with the radio edit of this classic.
