Sales of vinyl released by labels reporting to the BPI were at a 25-year high in 2016, according to new figures.
More than 3.2 million records were sold in the UK last year, the BPI reports, which suggests a 53% rise on 2015. The most popular record was David Bowie's Blackstar which sold more than double the copies of 2015's biggest seller, Adele's 25.
