Vinyl records are coming back. People thought they would disappear when CDs came out 30 years ago. Even MP3s didn't kill off records. Young people are becoming more interested in the seven-inch and 12-inch discs. In 2022, record sales were greater than CD sales for the first time since 1987. Over 41 million vinyl records were sold, compared to 33 million CDs. Records are increasing in popularity. The year 2022 was the 16th year of sales growth in a row.

A record association said there has been a "remarkable" rise in record sales. It said: "Vinyl is cementing its role in the modern music marketplace." It added: "Music lovers can't get enough of the high-quality sound and the connection to artists.…Record labels have made beautifully crafted discs." The covid pandemic has helped records come back. Many people worked at home and bought record players. That is continuing today.
