As a lifelong vinyl fan, I am more than delighted to see just how robust the current vinyl revival is. It was cool to watch it develop, but I expected it to plateau and taper off long ago. However, it continues to grow year after year and show no signs of slowing down!
Here's a perfect example.
Taylor just broke the record set for the largest sales week for a vinyl album in the United States since data began tracking in 1991, Billboard reported.
In a matter of three days, sales for the vinyl record already beat out the previous record of 40,000 copies held by Jack White‘s Lazaretto back in 2014. The album has already surpassed 40,000 copies through this weekend, according to initial reports.
Evermore was originally released in December of 2020, but its vinyl edition was not issued until May 28.
The news is also great news for vinyl lovers in general: 2020 marked the single-largest year for U.S. vinyl album sales in MRC Data history, and the 15th consecutive year of growth for vinyl according to the chart company.
