Old Music Outselling New Music: 1st Time Ever!

Despite the massive success of Adele's album 25, which sold a whopping 7.4 million copies in six weeks, 2015 marked the first time in U.S. history that new releases were outsold by catalogue albums.

The term "catalogue" refers to albums released more than 18 months ago. According to Nielsen's annual year end music report, catalogue albums outsold current releases by 4.3 million copies, something never before seen in the industry. Just 10 years ago, current music sales outpaced catalogue music by over 150 million albums.
