Vinyl Album Sales Hit A New High Over Christmas

Everything old is new again in the music business, with U.S. vinyl sales hitting a record high over Christmas, according to Nielsen Music.

More than 1.8 million LPs were sold in the week leading up to Christmas – the most since Nielsen began tracking album sales electronically back in 1991.

Even better, more than 40 percent of those sales came from independent record stores – pretty impressive during a pandemic.

Vinyl also outsold CDs by nearly 170,000 last week – the fourth time that’s happened in 2020.

Do you still collect vinyl? Why has it made such a resurgence?
