Over 1.8 Million LPs sold the week before Christmas.
The number marks the highest amount of vinyl sold in a single week in US history. Billboard reports that 1.842 vinyl LPs were sold the week before Christmas which ended on 12.24. It broke the record that was set the week before Dec 10-17 which 1.445 LPs were sold.
The new record is the biggest week in sales since tracking sales records began in 1991.
The trend isn’t exclusive to the US, as vinyl sales in the UK have just topped a three decade record in sales as well.
