    Pause the streaming! Vinyl is making a comeback.

    Streaming music seems to be the all the rage for music media. But the numbers tell a different story. Vinyl is making more money than the digital competition.

    Vinyl record sales brought in $221.8 million in revenue between January and June 2015, a 52 percent year-over-year increase, according to the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA). Ad-supported streaming services brought in $162.7 million during that same time period, according to the September 2015 report “News and Notes on 2015 Mid-Year RIAA Shipment and Revenue Statistics.”


    According to the Nielsen 2015 Mid-Year Report, the top selling vinyl records includes both new and old releases. The top selling vinyl title for 20xx (FILL IN) is Taylor Swift’s “1989,”with other new records like Sam Smith’s “In The Lonely Hour” and Alabama Shakes’s “Sound and Color” making the top 10 list. Top selling record vintage records include Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of The Moon” and Miles Davis’s “Kind of Blue.”
