What’s old is new — and thriving.

Though access to the world’s music catalog is easier than ever in 2019, fans continue to support a decades-old method of listening to their favorite artists: vinyl. United States vinyl sales in 2018 were up nearly 15 percent from their 2017 numbers, with 16.8 million records purchased last year. 2018 marked the 13th consecutive year that vinyl sales have grown, according to Nielsen Music, which has been tracking music sales since 1991.

Among these 16.8 million sold, albums like Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours, The Beatles‘ Abbey Road, and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller notched top spots, with Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 tying Thriller for the No. 1 spot. In terms of singles, The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” took the top spot with 10,000 sales, with songs like Prince‘s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and Led Zeppelin‘s “Rock and Roll”/”Friends” taking the second and third spots, respectively.
