Who would have thought it? the cassette tape is making a comeback.

The cassette tape which had long been consigned to musical history is making a comeback.

Sales of cassette tapes are soaring and current stars are releasing tracks on the format.

In 2018 cassette sales soared by 125 percent on the year before.

This amounts to more than 50,000 albums bought in the UK which is the highest volume in 15 years.

Last week British songwriter Jade Bird announced her new release as a limited edition cassette. Thank U, Next Arianna Grande is top of the tape charts.

There are four different cassette players being sold by Urban Outfitters, and Hi-Fi store Richer Sounds is selling two.

The nostalgia market has boomed for brands selling to the under 35’s.

Have you still got lots of your old cassette tapes?

Can you remember the first cassette tape you bought?
