MUSIC sales have risen in Spain for the first time in more than a decade.

Spending on recorded music reached €150 million in 2014, an increase of 21% on 2013 – deemed the worst year ever for Spain’s music industry.

Digital music sales have been highlighted as the main reason for the increase, rising 22.7%, now accounting for 42% of music spending.

Spanish pop stars Pablo Alboran and David Bisbal topped album sales for the year, while Enrique Iglesias’ summer hit Bailando led downloads and streaming sales.
