UK music retailers blame weak release schedule for 2013 sales decline

UK music retailers blame weak release schedule for 2013 sales decline | Wiseband | Scoop.it

UK retailers have blamed a decline in both albums and singles sales in 2013 on a “weak” music release schedule.

As reported yesterday, across physical and digital, UK album unit sales declined 6.4% to 94 million last year, while single sales dropped for the first time in recent history by 3.4% to 182.2m.

Annual revenue generated by singles sales was down 1.6% to £167.8m, while the albums market dropped 3.6% to £772.1m.
