The disc debuted at No. 13 on The Billboard 200 and entered the Top Current Canadian Album Chart at No. 8. The music icon co-produced his own record, which features help from Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Robert Randolph, Tom Morello and others.
Last month, Robbie was invested into the Order of Canada, one of the country's highest civilian honors. Robertson, who was inducted into the Canadian Songwriter Hall of Fame earlier this year, will be featured in the Canadian Recording Artists stamp series issued this month by Canada Post.
Robbie stopped by Jimmy Fallon last Thursday to play “Straight Down The Line” and was joined by house band The Roots and guest Robert Randolph, who plays on the album track.
