“Without You” by David Bowie (1983)
Gilt Framed 7" Record Sleeve
Keith Haring created the record sleeve design for David Bowie’s single "Without You", a song which was also included on Bowie’s "Let’s Dance" album of the same year.
This original vinyl pressing featuring instantly recognizable Haring artwork, is a highly collectible and desirable item among pop music and urban art lovers.
Artist and social activist Keith Haring emerged in the early ’80s inspired by New York City life alongside friends and artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Grace Jones and Madonna.
Haring initially found a presence in NYC subways (his “laboratory” for experimentation), creating as many as 40 large, chalk drawings a day for millions of commuters to view.
On rare occasions, Haring designed cover artwork for musicians that he admired, including disco icon Sylvester (of “You Make Me Feel [Mighty Real]” fame), David Bowie and Emanon, Doug E. Fresh’s beat-boxing protégé.
