Nostalgia is strong. First the big trend was vinyl records. Now the buzz is listening to music on cassette tapes. The Recording Industry of America is now re-looking at tape sales, because people are actually buying them!
People are dusting off their tapes from their basement, but also NEW music is getting cassette releases! Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose’ was released on cassette and now Urban Outfitters and other stores are starting to sell cassettes one more time. People like owning a physical copy of music and like the sound of music off a cassette.
