Banksy-designed vinyl cover sold for a record price

The work of the infamous graffiti has broken £1 million at auction multiple times in the last couple of years.

His “Girl With Balloon” went for £1.04 million in 2008; a year later, his painting “Devolved Parliament” smashed estimates, selling for almost £10 million.

The newest record Banksy’s broken is a vinyl. More specifically, he’s been instrumental in the highest-priced sale ever seen on Discogs, every music collector’s go-to site, reports Dazed.

The record in question is Melody A.M. by the Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp, and it went for a cool $10,256 (over £8000),

The cover shows the duo’s name in a pretty standard, green, stencilled font. Below it is a green design that looks something like pixellated treetops. Presumably the main draw of the cover, though, is that it’s one of only 100 hand-painted by Banksy himself, back in 2002.
