Jack White’s Lazaretto Debuts at Number One, Sets Vinyl Sales Record

Jack White’s latest solo effort Lazaretto has officially debuted at Number One on the U.S. album chart. Released on June 10, the record is White’s second #1 debut in as many albums, as the 137,732 units sold in the first week surpassed 2012’s Blunderbuss.

In addition to the album sales, the Lazaretto Ultra LP has sold over 40,000 copies marking the highest first-week vinyl sales since Soundscan began tracking vinyl sales data in 1991.

Next up for White is a jaunt across Europe beginning June 26 in Dublin, IRE. For a full list of tour dates and ticketing information, visit White’s website.
