Most anticipated vinyl releases of 2023

From a new Paramore album to The Strokes’ new box set. Here are the most anticipated vinyl record releases of 2023.

Vinyl sales are on the rise. The first half of 2022 saw sales in the US increase by 22 per cent and the global market is expected to grow by $663.77 million between 2023 and 2027. With many exciting and highly anticipated vinyl records being released in 2023, it’s not difficult to see why.

Paramore are set to release their first new music since 2017. This is Why, the band’s sixth album, will be released on February 10. Singer Hayley Williams described the album as summarising “the plethora of ridiculous emotions, the rollercoaster of being alive in 2022, having survived even just the last 3 or 4 years”.
