How to tap a vinylkey album to read the NFC tag or chip

Near Field Communication ( NFC ) is supported by most Apple and Android phones and is the communication method used when using “tap to pay”.

Vinylkey albums have an embedded NFC tag inside of the vinyl album and located in the center. See the below video of a vinylkey album being tapped. Reading the tag will send you to a website link that shows the NFT for the album.


  • Unlock your phone.
  • Hold the phone aligned with the album and slowly move it across the center.
  • If using a iPhone older than the iPhone 11 you may need to do some extra steps found here.
