You think you like vinyl records? You’re not alone.
According to reports from Nielsen and Digital Music News, 2014 saw the most vinyl records sold since they began tracking them in 1993.
A total of 9.2 million vinyl albums were sold, which is an incredible increase of 53% from 2013, the year before.
All together, vinyl records only account for 6% of all album sales (the most lucrative medium being digital sales, obviously), but the astonishing growth of this kind of physical copy points to the direction of the future of the industry.
Could this mean people are opting for quality over quantity?
