Jack White Sets Vinyl Sales Record with 'Lazaretto'

Jack White has set a new vinyl sales record with the first-week sales of his second solo album, Lazaretto.

The chart-topping LP sold 41,000 vinyl copies alone, with total sales for its first week coming in at around 138,000. It marks the biggest one-week shipment of vinyl since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991.

Jackson is an Associate Editor at GuitarWorld.com. He’s been writing and editing stories about new gear, technique and guitar-driven music both old and new since 2014, and has also written extensively on the same topics for Guitar Player (opens in new tab). Elsewhere, his album reviews and essays have appeared in Louder (opens in new tab) and Unrecorded (opens in new tab). Though open to music of all kinds, his greatest love has always been indie, and everything that falls under its massive umbrella. To that end, you can find him on Twitter crowing about whatever great new guitar band you need to drop everything to hear right now.
