A rare edition of Röyksopp‘s 2002 Melody A.M. vinyl record has just sold for a record price of $10,256 USD. Online vinyl marketplace Discogs now puts this Banksy-designed album as its highest sale recorded just after the Beatles’ Love Me Do album from 1962, sold for $9,220 USD.

The album artwork features the Norwegian group’s name with tree-like shapes stencil spray-painted on the front in green. While this album is far from being affordable, it is one way to own an original Banksy piece without having to pay six figures.
