Sony Resumes Vinyl Production After 28-Year Hiatus
on 29 June 2017
This year global revenue from vinyl sales is expected to reach $1 billion. Renewed interest in the format—once thought dead—stems from nostalgia, a more tactile product and that old-fashioned retail experience. Sony Music, one of the three globe-dominating record companies, plans to relaunch their vinyl pressing by March 2018. This will commence in their Tokyo set-up, though it's not clear whether they'll be producing from the back catalogue or new releases.
