The Jean Genie – David Bowie (1972)


An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring The Jean Genie by David Bowie. Released on the RCA record label the vinyl single has been reworked into a silhouette of  Ziggy Stardust with his unmistakable lightning bolt make-up splashed across his face.

According to Bowie, it was “a smorgasbord of imagined Americana”, with a protagonist inspired by Iggy Pop, and the title being an allusion to author Jean Genet. One of Bowie’s most famous tracks, The Jean Genie was the lead single for the album, Aladdin Sane (1973).
