Vinyl sales have surpassed digital downloads

Great news! According to The Guardian, “Vinyl album sales outstripped digital downloads for the first time last week.” Data from the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) proves that more money was spent on physical albums in week 48 of 2016 than on downloads. Music buyers spent £2.4 million on records versus £2.1 million on digital formats. With Christmas coming up we believe this number will rise even further.

Now let’s have a look at this 12 minute documentary looking at the recent resurgence of vinyl records in the United Kingdom in the past few years.
