British Music Sales Up For The First Time In Six Years

British Music Sales Up For The First Time In Six Years

Here's some news that will probably be taken as "good" by record label employees: For the first time in six years, British music sales went up. But the sales numbers for 2009 only went up 1.4 percent, and that was only after a "quite solid" fourth quarter. Digital sales are the likely reason for the upturn: They went up 47.8 percent, while physical sales fell by 6.1 percent. So yeah, sales are up, but not by much. I just think it's funny that the music companies over there are saying Robbie Williams helped sales immensely, because over here, he couldn't even save a Take That reunion. [Daily Swarm]
