Vinyl sales were their highest for three decades in 2021 as well.

If anyone says that physical media is on its last legs, tell them they are just plain wrong.

In the UK last year, vinyl sales were at their highest in three decades, rising for the 14th consecutive year in a row according to the Charts Company.

And in terms of the highest-selling records of the year, there were some familiar faces.

In terms of albums, Royal Blood's 'Typhoons' was the 14th best selling and Foo Fighters' 'Medicine At Midnight' was the 16th.

The title track of Royal Blood's record was also the 22nd best-selling single and 'Limbo' the 31st.

Joining them were Biffy Clyro with 'Errors In The History Of God', which was released on a 10' record alongside 'Unknown Male 01', and was the 19th best selling.

and Hayley Williams with 'Simmer', which despite being released digitally in 2020 hit 33rd on the physical side of things:
