A Röyksopp record painted by Banksy has fetched a princely sum on Discogs.
The Norwegian electronic duo’s 'Melody A.M.', which features a bare-bones stencil artwork, sold for a whopping $6962.
While the artwork is admittedly not all that special to look at, this particular record is incredibly rare. In 2002, Röyksopp sent the famous UK street artist 100 copies of a white label pressing of the album, and Banksy created a custom stencil design with the group’s name and a small, and presumably Norwegian, forest.
Four copies of this rare vinyl are still available on Discogs. But if you want one, you better be ready to shell out as much as $12,000.
