The Secret 7"

I'm taking part in the Secret 7" exhibition this year, which is really exciting!
For those of you who're not familiar with the concept, here's what they themselves say on their website:

"Secret 7’’ combines music and art for a good cause. What we do is take seven tracks from seven of the best-known bands and artists around. We press each of those tracks 100 times to vinyl then get creatives from around the world to interpret artwork in their own style for of one of the 7 tracks; resulting in a one-of-a-kind sleeve for every single one. 
You won’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 the chosen charity is Art Against Knives and the artists and tracks are: Elton John - Bennie and The Jets, HAIM - Better Off, Jessie Ware - Still Love Me, Laura Marling - The Beast,  Mas - The Don, Nick Drake - Rider On The Wheel and Public Enemy - Harder Than you Think.

The exhibition is open to the public the 13th and 14th of April and on Record Store Day, the 20th of April, the sleeves will be auctioned off and all the secrets reveled!
