Rare Album Sells for Over £27,000 (Minecraft's Creator Bought It)

By Luke Plunkett on at

Earlier this month, fans of British electronic musician Aphex Twin got a treat, with an entire album's worth of unreleased music salvaged and sent out following a successful Kickstarter campaign. The actual record, though, could only go to one person.

And that person was life-long Aphex Twin fan Markus Persson. The Minecraft creator won an online auction for the LP, parting with $46,300 (£27,282) for the rarity, the proceeds of which are being split between charity, the artist and his record label.

I wonder if he's a Wu-Tang fan as well...
