The Official Biggest Selling Vinyl Albums Of 2013 so far!
17/10/2013

By Daniel Lane

Thanks to releases from Daft Punk, Arctic Monkeys and David Bowie, UK sales of vinyl LPs are at a 10 year high.

According to Official Charts Company sales data released today by the British music industry’s trade body, The BPI, sales of vinyl albums are currently enjoying a ten year high.

Thanks to releases from the likes of Daft Punk, Arctic Monkeys and David Bowie, over 532,000 LPs have been purchased in the UK so far in 2013, which is a year-on-year increase of more than 100%. LPs now account for 0.8% of the UK’s albums market, which was just 0.1% in as recently as 2007. The BPI estimate that sales of vinyl albums could surpass 700,000 by the end of the year.

“The LP is back in the groove!” says The BPI’s Chief Executive, Geoff Taylor. “We’re witnessing a renaissance for records – they’re no longer retromania and are becoming the format of choice for more and more music fans. This year has been a treat for vinyl aficionados with releases from Daft Punk, David Bowie, Arctic Monkeys and Black Sabbath.

“While sales only account for a small percentage of the overall market, vinyl sales are growing fast as a new generation discovers the magic of 12" artwork, liner notes and the unique sound of analogue records, often accompanied by a download code for MP3s. As we look forward to new LPs from Arcade Fire and Jake Bugg in the run up to Christmas, the vinyl revival looks set to continue."

Love Your Local Record Store

One of the key drivers of the format’s sales has been Record Store Day – the annual celebration of independent record shops. This year’s event, which took place on Saturday, April 20, generated £2m worth of vinyl sales alone as thousands of shoppers snapped up special, limited edition releases which especially commissioned for the event.

Record Store Day has been incredibly important as a catalyst for the resurgence of vinyl,” says Kim Bayley, Director General of the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) which organises Record Store Day in the UK. “The fact that indie record shops managed to sell a huge £2m worth of vinyl in one day puts paid to the idea that either vinyl or record stores themselves are on the way out.”
