Vinyl is back with the UK’s first ever weekly Official Vinyl Charts

Kicking off Record Store Day week 2015, new proof arrives today that Britain’s renewed interest in music on vinyl shows little sign of slowing.

2014 witnessed vinyl LP sales reaching a 20-year high in the UK at 1.29 million, following seven years of unbroken growth, and now, new Official Charts Company data for the first quarter of 2015 reveals that this trend is continuing at pace, with vinyl album purchasing up yet again a staggering 69% versus the same period in 2014, and vinyl singles also up 23%.

So while it’s quite clear that music fans and collectors alike can’t get enough of the format, the Official Charts Company has introduced the UK’s first ever Official Vinyl Charts. The Official Vinyl Albums Chart Top 40 and Official Vinyl Singles Chart Top 40 (combining sales of 7” and 12” singles) launch exclusively on the all-new OfficialCharts.com, with the charts published each week on Sundays, 7pm.
