Vinyl Sales Surged the Week Before Christmas

Last Week Sales of vinyl records have reached an all-time high not seen in the 28 years since Nielsen Music started tracking, with nearly 1 million LPs flying off the shelves last week.

According to Billboard, an aggregate of 973,000 units sold among all artists, making up 25% of all albums bought during the week ending December 19.

Which artists were responsible for the surge? Harry Styles (Fine Line) followed by Billie Eilish (When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?).

The Beatles‘ 50th-anniversary edition of Abbey Road was third. Capping the top 5 was the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 soundtrack (featuring Raspberries, David Bowie, Elvin Bishop, The Runaways) and Queen‘s Greatest Hits.
