Coldplay’s ‘Everyday Life’ debuts in Billboard Top 10
Coldplay collected its seventh Top 10 album this week as its eighth studio outing, Everyday Life, debuted at Number Seven on the Billboard 200 album chart. The LP moved 48,000 equivalent album units, 36,000 of which were physical product sales.
The band first visited the Billboard 200 chart nearly 19 years ago, when the group’s debut full-length studio set, Parachutes, bowed on the tally in December 2000 at Number 189. Parachutes eventually climbed to a peak of Number 51 in March 2001.
Since then, all seven of Coldplay’s subsequent full-length studio efforts, including the new album, have debuted in the Top 10. Four of the band’s albums — X&Y, Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, Mylo Xyloto and Ghost Stories — entered the chart at Number One.
To celebrate the new disc’s November 22nd release, the band played two concerts in Jordan which were livestreamed via YouTube. But frontman Chris Martin told BBC News that the band will not go on tour for the new album until they can offer carbon-neutral concerts.
