Tesco to stock range of vinyl albums after success of summer trial

Included in the 20 disc range will be the new release by Coldplay and the latest George Ezra and David Gilmour albums.

It will also include classic albums by artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Foo Fighters, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Radiohead and Elvis Presley.

Tesco music buyer Michael Mulligan said: “Our trial selling vinyl this summer was a real success with all our stock selling out and this really proved to us just how popular the vinyl album format is again with music fans.

“Vinyl is definitely coming back with demand growing stronger year by year and we think there will be a big demand in the UK this Christmas as music fans look for trendy gifting options.

“We have brought in vinyl albums for everyone – from new releases for established collectors to absolute classics for younger fans and for mums and dads who might have worn out their original copies the first time round.

“By also selling record decks we are helping customers who are looking to start their own vinyl album collection.”

According to figures from the British Phonographic Institute, UK vinyl sales have grown every year since 2007 and in 2014 reached almost 1.3 million – the highest annual total since 1995.

Tesco began selling record decks last Christmas and now stocks 12 different models, ranging in price from £40 to £140.
