Music sales slump for 6th year running
News: 6th January 2011 by Louise Dodgson under Record Labels
For the 6th year running UK music sales have taken a drop, the BPI reported yesterday. Both CD and digital sales have declined, and although there was a 30% increase in digital albums sold in 2010, it still wasn't enough to save the album altogether with overall album sales still slumping by 7%.
However, the singles market experienced a great triumph racking up an all-time high of 161.8m sales. We no doubt have the likes of X Factor to thank for the boost in single sales. So yeah...ummm...thanks?
