'Lazaretto' becomes biggest selling vinyl in 20 years

It certainly seems like vinyl has firmly made a comeback after it has now been announced that Jack White's second solo album 'Lazaretto' is now the biggest selling vinyl album in 20 years.

Dubbed an Ultra LP, for its unique hidden features and hologram effects, the album has now sold more than 60,000 copies worldwide, beating Pearl Jam's 1994 album 'Vitalogy'. And to give you some perspective, last year's biggest selling vinyl, Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories', shifted 49,000 copies.

You can watch Jack White explaining all those marvellous little gimmicks on the 'Lazaretto' LP again below.
