For the first time since the 1980s, vinyl records have outsold CDs.
According to CNN, in the first half of the year, vinyl accounted for $232.1 million of music sales. CDs only brought in $129.9 million. Vinyl grew by 4% in the first half of 2020, while CD sales were down 48%.
Overall, physical sales are down 23%.
Personally, I couldn’t tell you the last time I bought a CD. However, I have been building a small vinyl collection! What about you?
