Original Article

The best-selling vinyl albums and singles of 2020 in the UK have been announced by the Official Charts Company (OCC).

The two charts have been published following news from the BPI this week of another strong year for the physical format, with vinyl sales in particular increasing by 11.5% last year compared to 2019 as almost 4.8 million records were purchased – a 13th year of consecutive growth for the format in the UK.

The OCC have today (January 6) published their rundown of the top 40 best-selling vinyl albums in the UK in 2020, with Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Rumours’ being named as the biggest-selling vinyl album of last year after it shifted 32,500 copies.

Oasis’ ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’ and Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To Black’ complete the top three. The top-selling vinyl album that was released in 2020 was Kylie Minogue‘s ‘Disco’, which has sold 21,500 copies on vinyl since its release in November.
