Ed Sheeran Says He Had To Hurry To Finish His Album Because Adele ‘Booked Out All The Vinyl Factories’

Ed Sheeran’s “Equal” had to be fished early so that vinyl factories could press up records.  Sheeran told a radio show that Adele had booked out all of the vinyl factories so he had to finish up recording the album in July so he could get it to the factories before Adele’s “30” album.  “There’s like, three vinyl factories in the world, so you have to do it really [early]. And Adele had basically booked out all the vinyl factories, so we had to get a slot and get our album in there,” said Sheeran.  Ed also mentioned Coldplay, Taylor Swift, ABBA, and Elton John as other artists who were in line to get vinyl pressed.  What format do you listen to music on? Do you have a vinyl collection?
