Mercury Records, the home such artists as U2, Arcade Fire, and Elton John, will no longer release singles in CD or vinyl form. Beginning immediately, singles will now only be offered as digital downloads. (The only exceptions will be very special events, such as charity releases.)
Physical sales of such releases have recently made up around only 1% of the singles chart. Mercury will still participate in Record Store Day, however, on April 16, with limited EPs specifically for the event.
Tons of other bands are releasing special runs of vinyl for Record Store Day as well.
