Jack Johnson hasn’t even announced a full summer tour yet, but with the blockbuster debut of Sleep Through The Static, it’s surely one of the most anticipated.
The album blasted onto the Nielsen SoundScan chart at No. 1 for the week of February 10th with almost 375,000 copies sold – more than six times the number sold by the previous week’s No. 1, Alicia Keys’ As I Am.
It also set a record for the most digital sales in a single week, with 139,000 copies, or 37 percent of its total.
Johnson is currently touring in Australia and New Zealand and has Bonnaroo and Coachella festivals inked in the States.
A summer shed tour of the U.S. is expected to be announced soon.
