An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring the 1988 hit, Desire by Irish rock band U2. The vinyl single has been reworked into a silhouette of the letter U and number 2 in a style taken from the U2 album, Rattle and Hum.

Desire was released as the lead single for the album Rattle and Hum. It was the band’s first number-one single in the UK.  U2 cite the Stooges’ song “1969” as the primary influence on Desire, which is an interpolation of the Bo Diddley Beat. An early version of the song appears in the form of a studio performance in the film Rattle and Hum which documents their  North American tour of the following year.
