The demise of the CD single came one step closer today as the supermarket chain Asda announced it will no longer sell the format.
The chain, which currently has a 15 per cent market share, is to phase out singles from this week and will replace them with more cut-price music albums.
Asda, the first major outlet to abandon singles, attributed dwindling customer demand to the rising popularity of digital downloads. The store, which previously sold the Top 20 chart songs on CD single, is now dropping them from all 336 of its UK outlets.
