Jack White Debuts A Top US Album Chart
Jack White visits the No.1 slot on the Billboard 200 for the first time, as his debut solo set, "Blunderbuss", arrives with 138,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the rocker's first No.1 in any form - he missed the top with his other bands The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and the Dead Weather. (However, they collectively notched seven top 10 sets.) The highest chart of any of those band's releases was The White Stripes' 2007 album "Icky Thump," which bowed and peaked at No.2 with a 223,000 first week. (It was stuck behind Bon Jovi's No.1 - debuting "Lost Highway," with 292,000.) "Blunderbuss" is the debut solo album by Jack White, released on April 24, 2012 through White's own label Third Man Records in association with XL Recordings and Columbia Records. The album was written, recorded and produced entirely by White in 2011. The first single from the album, "Love Interruption", was released on January 30 through White's website and Third Man Records website. Check out Jacks current tour schedule here. Thanks to Billboard.com for the story.
