The 90's are back (if we're talking vinyl sales)

The 90's are back (if we're talking vinyl sales)

In case you haven't heard, vinyl is back!

Last year, over 3.2 million vinyl LPs were sold in the UK. That's a 53% rise in LP sales from 2015. It's also highest number of LPs sold since 1991. 

Due in large part to the deaths of a number of music icons, this was the 9th consecutive year that vinyl sales have grown. 

Unsurprisingly, David Bowie sold the most vinyl, with 5 albums posthumously included in the top-30-best sellers. 

United States vinyl sales numbers should be coming soon from Nielsen Music.
