The Official biggest selling vinyl albums and singles of 2017 so far

Ed Sheeran finds himself alongside classics from Amy Winehouse, David Bowie and more.

As the resurgence in vinyl's popularity gathers pace, OfficialCharts.com can reveal that Ed Sheeran's ÷ is 2017's most popular vinyl album so far.

Ed's third record, which leads the way as the biggest artist album of 2017 so far, has sold over 21,000 on vinyl alone since its release at the start of March.

Almost six years after her sad passing, Amy Winehouse's popularity endures – her sophomore album Back To Black is in second place. David Bowie lands three titles in the Top 40: hits retrospective Legacy (3); last year's bestselling vinyl album Blackstar (13); and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust (32).

Newcomer Rag'n'Bone Man is in fourth with Human, while Beatles' classic Abbey Road is at 5, one of three entries in the Top 40 for the Fab Four.

Four iconic movie soundtracks also make the Top 40 vinyl rundown: Guardians of the Galaxy (8), Pulp Fiction (10), Trainspotting (26), and Prince's Purple Rain (31).

While the vinyl Top 40 plays host to a great number of vintage titles, a number of 2017 releases also feature in the list. Aside from Ed Sheeran (1) and Rag'n'Bone Man (4) are The xx's I See You (7), Elbow (16), A Tribe Called Quest (21), Bonobo (25), and Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes (38).

Over on vinyl singles, the late David Bowie leads the way on the nation's turntables. A special release of Sound And Vision, put out to celebrate the track's 40th anniversary, is the biggest selling vinyl single of the year. A reissue of Buzzcocks' Spiral Scratch is runner-up this first quarter, while Blondie log two entries with Fun (3) and Long Time (6); two brand new songs from their upcoming album Pollinator.

Other notable entries include George Michael's classic Freedom (9), a massive six entries from The 1975, and three from Brian Jonestown Masscare.
