The Official Top 40 bestselling vinyl albums and singles of 2020 so far

Tame Impala, Courteeners, Blossoms and Ozzy Osbourne have been big sellers in 2020.

Vinyl sales were on the up for the 12th consecutive year in 2019, and a whole host of artists have rode that wave of momentum into 2020 with big sales on the revived format.

Australian psychedelic act Tame Impala leads the way of bestselling albums released in 2020 having shifted 6,900 copies. The Slow Rush is the year's fourth best-selling vinyl album, and peaked at Number 1 on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart on release in February. The Slow Rush is also 2020's fastest-selling vinyl album so far.

Three classic albums lead the year's overall biggest sellers, staple records in any collection. Amy Winehouse's Back To Black is the best seller of 2020 so far, trailed by Nirvana's Nevermind and Fleetwood Mac's Rumours in the Top 3.

The Courteeners claim the biggest 2020 release by a British act; their latest album More. Again. Forever reached Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart and topped the vinyl chart. On 6,300 copies sold, it's the year's fifth most-purchased vinyl album.

Also in the Top 10 are big 2019 releases from Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles, while Blossoms' chart-topping album Foolish Loving Spaces is in 9th, and Bombay Bicycle Club ride to 10th with Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.
