A rare Röyksopp record featuring a cover painted by Banksy has become the most expensive record sold on Discogs this year.
Only 100 copies of the Bansky-painted record exist, after the Norwegian duo asked him to put his personal touch on a special vinyl edition of their 2002 album, 'Melody A.M.'. The latest copy to sell via the music marketplace, which features Banksy's personally spraypainted artwork, went for $10,256 in September, which is the most a copy of the record has ever fetched on Discogs. You can see the minimalist artwork for yourself above.
The Banksy edition of 'Melody A.M.' has seemingly gathered value in recent months after a few copies hit the Discogs market. In May one copy sold for $7,051, while in July, another sold for $8,178.
