Pop’s 17th solo record overall, Post Pop Depression marks the very first time he’s received such an honor for one of his solo efforts.
With 18,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen Music, he posts his best weekly sum since Nielsen began tracking data in 1991. The set also debuts at No. 17 on the Billboard 200, his highest-charting entry, easily besting 1977’s Idiot (No. 72).
The LP will land at the top spot on the Top Rock Albums, Alternative Albums, Vinyl Albums and Tastemaker Albums as it’s clearly making waves in the alternative/rock community…and with good reason.
Pop, Homme and the rest of the musicians involved with this project just kicked off a special tour in support of the album – check below for more details.
