Due to the coronavirus pandemic, last year's Record Store Day was split across three drop dates in August, September and October, with different exclusive titles allocated to each of the drop dates.
In December last year UK vinyl sales reached the highest peak since the early ‘90s, with approximately 4.8 million vinyl albums sold in the UK throughout 2020.
