More Vinyl Records Are Spinning Their Way To Doorsteps
Vinyl record sales have skyrocketed in 2015, and the way we are buying them is changing, too.By Cody LaGrow | December 25, 2015
In 2015, it seems we've blown the dust off of the idea that vinyl records are outdated. The spinning source of music has made quite the comeback.
"Sales are up more than 50 percent this year for vinyl records. Yes, the hottest way to listen to music in 1915 is also one of the hottest ways in 2015," Lester Holt said on NBC's "Nightly News."
Vinyl record sales reached $226 million for the first half of the year, more than Spotify's ad-supported free service, which earned almost $163 million. But paid services, like Spotify Premium, took the cake after earning about $478 million.
