Vinyl’s hot right now, and though the resurgence does, in fact, allude to a long-term shift in the record market, apparently, it also alludes to significant market expansion — royal nuptials.
That’s right folks, we’re talking the union of strangers. Coming to a record player near you is the upcoming union of Prince Harry and Meagan Markle. The royal wedding will officially be dropping on vinyl courtesy of the record label Decca. That’s right, hipsters, the royal wedding will be coming to you live on your living room record player.
Though Harry and Markle’s wedding isn’t the first royal occasion to be given the vinyl treatment, as the Queen’s coronation and royal weddings before have too been commemorated with their own pressings, this occasion is an exciting deliverance for those who nevertheless receive happiness from the union of absolute strangers.
If that doesn’t excite you enough, perhaps you’d like to know that the ceremony will feature a dazzling array of performances from the renowned cellist Sheku Kanneh Mason, soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, the St George’s Chapel choir, and gospel group the Kingdom Choir. Here’s to the absolute joy of the vinyl resurgence, may it reign on, and welcome more randomness forevermore.
