The singer and songwriter Taylor Swift is leading the resurgence of vinyl, a trend that has taken over the American music industry in the last decade. The format, which was previously considered practically dead, continues to gain popularity in new generations.

“The Tortured Poets Department” It broke the all-time record for the biggest week of sales of a vinyl record in the history of the United States.

According to Billboard, Swift’s latest release has already sold 700,000 copies on vinyl. This is a record never before seen in a week for this format.

Only Taylor Swift can surpass Taylor Swift

Swift breaks her own record for the biggest week of vinyl sales in US history. Before “The Tortured Poets Department” came along, that label belonged to her previous album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version)”.

Last year, the re-recording of his original album sold 693,000 copies on vinyl in its first week on the market.

For now, it has the best week of sales for a vinyl album in the US, but it’s just getting started. The figure of 700,000 units is only until Sunday, April 21. That means Swift shattered her own record in just three dayssince the title went on sale on Friday, April 19.

However, the count continues until next Thursday (April 25). By then, the album’s total sales – both on vinyl and other formats – will surely be much higher, exceeding expectations.

Taking all forms of purchase into account, the first week total for “The Tortured Poets Department” is incredibly higher than its vinyl figure. The album has already sold 1.5 million copies across all formats including CD, cassette and digital download.

The new album will give Swift the biggest debut of her career, and will likely lead the top spot on any Billboard chart in years.
