In addition to having a solid streaming service, Amazon is now trying to push into the physical music realm with its new Vinyl Club.
As record sales have a three-decade high, companies like Amazon are wanting to cash in on the resurgence of the old music format. As such the company has announced its Vinyl of the Month subscription service, currently only available in the USA.
The subscription service will send a new record to members every 30 days or so, but to start will be focused on an older generation of music. Expert records from artists such as Led Zeppelin, Aretha Franklin, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, and others of a similar ilk. However, there is no doubt this will expand to more modern artists, especially as they too are seeing a boost in physical sales.
Members are able to see what record is being sent to them on their Returns and Orders page with the option to skip a record of they so wish. If they forget to do that, they can return the album as long as it remains unopened.
It’s an interesting move by the company who are clearly looking to diversify how they get music to their users, be that digitally via streaming or physically. Either way, it’s a great way to get some brilliant records sent to your doorstep on a monthly basis.
