Mumford & Sons Top The Album Chart Once Again, With Third LP ‘Wilder Mind’
Mumford & Sons score their second #1 album this week with Wilder Mind, which tops the Billboard 200 after moving 249,000 units (231,000 of which were actual sales). The band’s previous set, 2012’s Babel, also landed at the top of the main album chart, while their critically-acclaimed debut, Sigh No More, peaked at #2 in 2011, nearly two years after its release.
Other than that, it’s a relatively quiet week on the main album chart, with Josh Groban hanging out in the runner-up slot for a second week with his collection of theater tunes, Stages, while the 2,486,593rd NOW compilation debuts at #3.
