Again, let’s be clear: if we add up all the vinyl sales from around the world, that number would still represent a tiny, tiny, tiny sliver of overall recorded music sales–about 2%. Still, it’s awfully cool to watch those sales go up. Things got better by 49% this year.
That being said, it should come as no surprise that the vinyl sales champion of 2014 is Jack White’s Lazaretto, which moved 75,700 copies.
Second place went to the Arctic Monkeys’ AM (40,600), Turn Blue from the Black Keys (28,300), Lana Del Rey’s Born to Die (27,200) and Morning Phase from Beck (25,000).
