Vinyl sales over the last couple years have increased more than industry experts could’ve predicted. While streaming music has seen a 500% increase since 2013, it appears that vinyl sales (especially with the younger music fan!) have increased steadily as well. For example, Ed Sheeran’s new record has sold 62% through CD and vinyl alone!
Experts see the relationship between vinyl & streaming as complementary. Music fans are exposed to an artist and/or their latest album through streaming service, then decide to invest in a physical copy of the record. Sounds like a great way to be to us!!
