Vinyl record sales in 2021 highest In 30 Years

January 1, 2022

With the amount of hipsters in the world, this stat really shouldn’t surprise you. Vinyl record sales in 2021 were the highest they’ve been in 30 years!

More than five million vinyl albums were sold in 2021, an 8% increase from 2020; it’s the 14th year in a row for increased sales, with vinyl making up 23% of all albums sold this year! 


The biggest-selling vinyl album of 2021? ABBA’s ‘Voyage’, Adele’s ’30’ and Sam Fender’s ‘Seventeen Going Under’.

No surprise here, a new study by MRC Data found that Gen Z bought more LPs than millenials. No shit Sherlock. Pretty sure you didn’t need to do a study about that. 

What’s the last album you bought?
