Physical music in the UK see sales half during coronavirus lockdown

While online music and video streaming platforms boom in popularity during quarantine, closure of physical record stores has lead to a steep decline in physical music sales.

Recent reports suggest sales of physical music have halved during the lockdown. This is to be expected with a general increase in music streaming, and physical music stores such as HMV and independent record shops shut.
