What Will Death Cab Have To Be Sad About Now?

May 16th, 2008 // 8 Comments

lookatallthoseprettycolors.jpgThe largely accurate Hits Daily Double Friday chart preview has been posted, and Death Cab for Cutie are projected to hit the top spot on this week’s album chart with sales in the neighborhood of 150,000 copies. Everyone else probably won’t make it past 100k, including a Frank Sinatra Reprise best-of repackaging at #2 (80,000 or so), Mariah Carey (70-ish thousand), Jason Mraz, Leona Lewis, Neil Diamond, Madonna and Toby Keith. Fighting it out for the ninth and tenth spots: active rock newcomers 10 Years, and the always charming Keith Sweat. Next week, a parade of exciting releases honoring my birthday from Bun B, 3 Doors Down, Jesse McCartney, and the Flobots. [Hits Daily Double]

    Frank Sinatra! Neil Diamond! What year is this again?

    Maura’s already got the “I Will Possess Your Chart” pun drafted for next Wednesday’s headline, I just know it.

    The Flobots album has been out since October, I guess with the radio hit their label is staging some kind of relaunch?

    @Al Shipley: I think they did the music during the commercials of Teh Hills a few weeks ago so I’m sure LC’s thumbs up sent sales skyrocketing.

    @Al Shipley: It’s a re-release on Universal.

  5. Empire

    Don’t worry. Now they can be sad that all those people buying their album don’t really “get” them.

  6. Al Shipley

    @Dan Gibson: Universal released it the first time. Maybe they’re adding some bonus tracks or something?

  7. Dan Gibson

    @Al Shipley: It might be a faux-rerelease, to be honest. It has a new catalog number now and a lower price, but I think it has the same twelve tracks.
