7 Albums I Want To Get On Vinyl This Year

Since starting my blog I have become obsessed with vinyl, rummaging through Urban Outfitters every once in a while hoping to find a Lana Del Rey or The Weeknd album. Today I gathered the 7 albums I wanted to listen to most on vinyl, whether they’re sixteen years old or haven’t even been released yet. I mean, yes, I could splash all my cash at once and mass buy vinyl, but where is the fun in that? I love the excitement of finding that one album or EP you’ve been non stop listening to for a week in a record store. Who doesn’t?

Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land ~ MARINA

I know this album was released back in September last year however I never got around to listening to it properly until last week. I love how MARINA packs so many meaningful lyrics into each song, covering a range of topics through tuneful tracks.

Harry’s House ~ Harry Styles

So this album isn’t out yet, but of course I’ve already pre-ordered the translucent yellow vinyl version. As It Was is a fantastic first single, and I hope the rest of the album generates this tranquil indie sound.

Kiss Land ~ The Weeknd

So I’ve already got Starboy, and Dawn FM is arriving in the post this week, so why not get a third album by The Weeknd? One that also happens to be a competitor for my favourite Abel album. I’m not sure any song even comes close to Wanderlust in the grand scheme of The Weeknd songs.

Victoria ~ Thomas Headon

I could have got this EP vinyl sooner if I had gone to Thomas Headon’s concert at banquet records, but unfortunately the tickets sold out faster than I thought they would. Either way, this EP is a strong group of unskippable tracks that I have been playing endlessly on Spotify. Now it’s time to do so on a record player.

Friendly Fire ~ Sean Ono Lennon

When I first discovered and then reviewed this album, I did not expect to find one of my favourite songs ever – one that would enter my imaginary desert island discs. And yes – I’m talking about Parachute. The vocals, the production, the lyrics – there is nothing on this album to dislike. Due to how criminally underrated it is and the fact that it is sixteen years old, it may take a while for me to find a good one online.

Lust For Life ~ Lana Del Rey

So I’ve got Lana’s first album Born To Die and her latest album Blue Banisters, it’s time to meet somewhere in the middle with Lust For Life. Within the fandom, this album isn’t the most popular for reasons I cannot understand. Tomorrow Never Came, In My Feelings, Love? How could you not love this album to pieces?

Emotion ~ Carly Rae Jepsen

Everyone knows Carly Rae Jepsen is one of the princesses of pop (along with Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat etc) and it’s no secret that Emotion is her best album. I didn’t take a proper listen to this album until this year but I can’t say happy I am that I found it. It truly is up there with 1989 by Taylor Swift as one of the best pop albums of the decade.
