AC/DC top UK album charts with Power Up

AC/DC have debuted atop the UK charts with their new album, “Power Up.”

According to The Official Charts Company, the band sold 62,000 units to enter No. 1 on the weekly list while also earning the biggest opening week sales tally of 2020 to date … and the fastest-selling album of the year in the region.

“Power Up” marks AC/DC’s first UK No. 1 in a decade – since they last hit the mark with 2010’s “Iron Man 2” soundtrack.

“A very big thank you to everyone who put in their time, effort and creativity to get PWR/UP to Number 1!,” says Angus Young. “Also a big shoutout to all our fans, old and new. You are, and always have been, our guiding inspiration.”

AC/DC recorded the project in Vancouver with producer Brendan O’Brien in 2018.

As the music sales week in North America nears its completion, “Power Up” will also compete for top spot in the US charts in the coming days.
