The Official Chart Company have unveiled a list of the best-selling vinyl singles and albums of the year so far.

With vinyl sales rising over the past decade, culminating with 2014 vinyl sales figures hitting a 20-year high, the Official Charts Company launched their first ever Vinyl Chart in April.

Now, Noel Gallagher has claimed the biggest-selling vinyl record of 2015 so far and the best-selling vinyl single.

‘Chasing Yesterday’, the latest album from Gallagher’s new band the High Flying Birds, tops the vinyl albums countdown, while singles ‘Riverman’, ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’ and ‘The Dying Of The Light’ take the top three spots in the singles list.

Elsewhere, the vinyl albums chart for the year so far largely consists of recent reissues, such as Led Zeppelin’s ‘Physical Graffiti’ and ‘Four Symbols’.

However, new records from Blur (‘The Magic Whip’), Royal Blood (‘Royal Blood’) and Sufjan Stevens (‘Carrie & Lowell’) also place high.

Blur also take the fourth spot in the singles countdown (‘Y’all Doomed’), while two David Bowie reissues (‘Changes’, ‘Young Americans’) and a split with Tom Verlaine (‘Side By Side – Kingdom Come’) appear in the Top 10. Paul Weller and Mark Ronson also feature.

The first quarter of 2015 saw vinyl album sales up 69 per cent and vinyl single sales up 23%.
