After almost three decades, the abandoned vinyl is coming back with its old-time charm. On the very high demands of the retro music format, Sony had decided to restart making records.

The production of freshly pressed records will commence by March next year, in a factory in south-west Tokyo, Japan.

According to the country's recording industry association, back in the mid-1970s, almost 200 million records were produced in Japan.

Sony was a major global player in the development of CDs, but in the era of downloads and music streaming, the company had to take a seat back.

But with vinyl making its global comeback, the company is expected to find its niche once again. Vinyl will attract not only its nostalgic older consumers, but also younger generations.

With a touch of the latest technology, this fresh new vinyl record can offer a change from digital alternatives.
