2021: Another Positive Year for Physical Music
Recent press, including the BPI article above, make for positive reading for physical music in 2021. Vinyl reporting a 30 year high, commercially released cassettes reaching nearly 200,000 units and CD's, despite a fall in sales, still registered 14 million in commercially released sales. Although these numbers get shadowed by music streaming, they do demonstrate a continued commitment by artists and labels to release music on physical formats. Remember that the physical music released independently won't show in the press numbers and from our own experience we know these also represent a significant contribution to physical music sales.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those customers that trusted us with their music in 2021 and look forward to hearing more new sounds in 2022 and helping bring these to life.
