David Bowie’s 'Blackstar' became out of stock on vinyl at the world’s biggest retailer, Amazon, in the US and the UK hours after the announcement of his death on Monday (January 11).
With 'Blackstar' expected to top the charts in both the UK and US this week, The Vinyl Factory reports that the UK first pressing has completely sold out with retailers unable to satisfy the huge increase in demand. It is reported that up to 10,000 vinyl copies of the record have been sold so far.
Vinyl copies of the album are currently out of stock on Amazon and unavailable at Rough Trade's online shop. Online retailer Norman Records have released a statement telling fans to "expect significant delays in shipping as the inevitable and necessary repressings will take time".
Additional pressings of the album are expected from January 25, according to The Vinyl Factory.
