Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher recently dismissed the current resurgence in vinyl’s popularity, suggesting that the revival will come to an end by 2020.

In January, vinyl sales in the UK topped 1.3 million for the first time since 1995, while Gallagher’s recent album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ has been named the best-selling vinyl album of 2015 so far.

Speaking to Q recently, Gallagher said of the feat: “Yeah I know, unbelievable isn’t it? For the people who still want to buy and own music, for me to be sat at the top of that list really is great. Until you look at how many people are actually buying it and it’s like a thousand albums! Fucking hell, I’ve probably got more than a thousand sat in my office right now. But it’s the streaming thing – there will be no record sales by the end of the decade, I think.”
