Florence + The Machine is having a sleeve art exhibition for charity
Story filed by Mikey on March 27, 2012
Florence ‘+’ The Machine and 99 other people have designed special 7″ vinyl record sleeves in aid of charity.
The Secret 7″ and Record Store Day event will see 50 fan-designed sleeves, 49 covers by various ‘contributors’ (non regular people) and one sleeve by Florence herself all go on display in London.
The limited edition sleeve art exhibition will hang for three days at the Idea Generation gallery in Shoreditch from April 18.
On April 21, each of the unmarked sleeves will go on sale for a minimum donation of £40 – with proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Your cash could buy you a one-off design by Florence Welsh, or it could buy you a one-off design by Joan from Grimsby.
CSS, Noah & The Whale and The Cure are all involved in similar efforts which you can find out about here.
