Arctic Monkeys Have Biggest US Chart Success Yet
20 September 2013, 11:37
Arctic Monkeys are celebrating US chart success this week… with AM making No 6 in the Billboard Top 200.
Their fifth album sees them return to America's Top 10 for the first time since Favourite Worst Nightmare debuted at No 7 in 2007.
Music Week reports that AM sold 42,000 copies in the US last week, while the record is on course to have another week in the No 1 spot in the UK.
The single Do I Wanna Know has also been doing well in America, making the alternative airplay chart - only their second release to do so after I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor.
You can hear Alex Turner and Matt Helders take Radio X's John Kennedy through AM track by track right here.
