Mother London Invites Creatives To Design An Iconic Record Sleeve

Published on .

If you've ever wanted to design a record sleeve for Black Sabbath, T-Rex or Roxy Music, here's your chance.

Mother London is seeking creatives from around the world to contribute to its Secret 7" project, in which artists are invited to create new sleeve art for seven iconic records to raise money for good causes. This year, selected work will feature in an exhibition and sale of 700 records at Mother from April 12th. Proceeds this year will go to War Child.

Now in its third year, the project has counted Ai Weiwei, Gilbert & George and David Shrigley amongst its previous artwork contributors. Last year, a queue began forming 24 hours in advance of the sale, which sold out in just a few hours. Some of the winning entries can be seen below.

The tracks for 2014 are: Black Sabbath's Age Of Reason; Elbow's Grounds For Divorce; Jake Bugg's Strange Creatures; Lorde's Team; Massive Attack's Karmacoma; Roxy Music's Virginia Plain; and T.Rex's Get It On. The work is selected in collaboration with the artists themselves.

Those wanting to enter should go to the Secret 7" website at The closing date for entries is 19th February.
