London: This year, vinyl sales in the UK have passed the one million mark for the first time since 1996, thanks to veterans Pink Floyd and David Bowie.

Albums by the two have helped boost sales of the format, which achieved the one million milestone last weekend. Currently Bowie's new best of collection, 'Nothing Has Changed', holds the top spot on the vinyl chart replacing last week's number one Pink Floyd's 'The Endless River'.

'The Endless River', which sold over 6,000 vinyl copies in its first week of release is now the highest selling vinyl LP since 1997 and therefore the fastest-selling vinyl album this century.

"In scoring the biggest opening week for a vinyl album this millennium, Pink Floyd's 'The Endless River' illustrates the British public's renewed love for this format," said Official Charts chief executive, Martin Talbot in a statement.

Talbot went on to say that vinyl sales this year are on course to become a 20 million pounds business, saying it was, "an incredible turnaround from barely 3 million pounds just five years ago."
