Cassette sales have hit a 15-year high, driven by album releases by long- established stars including Kylie Minogue and Madonna.
The number sold more than doubled year on year while the final quarter of 2018 recorded the highest UK sales since 2004.
More recent stars such as Billie Eilish and The 1975 also helped to boost cassette sales to 36,000 so far this year.
