Vinyl's Outperforming Digital: What Year is it Even?

Turns out last week was a huge moment for the music industry.

The Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) have just revealed that more money was spent on vinyl than downloads last week, with £2.4m worth of physical taking out £2.1m in digital revenue. As a comparison, in the same week of last year, vinyl was batting £1.2m in sales against digital's £4.4m.

The ERA puts this boom down to major chains stocking popular vinyl, initiatives like Record Store Day, and the romance of music lovers' attachment to physical product.

That being said, according to a snap survey by the BBC, less than half of vinyl lovers are even playing the things.

Cue your parents hugging their Santana records and rolling their eyes at the kids these days.
