Alice Cooper: Detroit Stories tops US album sales chart

Alice Cooper’s latest record, “Detroit Stories”, has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart.

According to Billboard, “Detroit Stories” sold 13,000 copies across all available formats (CD, vinyl LP, digital download) in the week ending March 4, according to MRC Data, of which 9,500 were sold via CD and 2,000 came via vinyl LP, while the remaining 1,500 were digital albums.

The feat earns Cooper his first chart-topper in the 29-year history of the Top Album Sales chart.

Billed as a modern-day homage to his hometown and the city that launched the original Alice Cooper group, the singer recorded the set with producer Bob Ezrin and a number of Detroit musicians.

Cooper launched the record last fall with his cover of the Velvet Underground classic, “Rock ‘N’ Roll”, and follow-up tracks “Our Love Will Change The World” and “Social Debris.”

“Detroit Stories” also debuted at No. 1 on the Tastemaker Albums chart – which ranks the top-selling albums at independent and small chain music stores – as well as landing at No. 2 on Hard Rock Albums, No. 5 on Top Rock Albums, No. 7 on Independent Albums, No. 18 on Vinyl Albums and at No. 47 on the Billboard 200.

“Absolutely floored by all of the support for Detroit Stories,” shared Cooper on social media. “Love you to Death, Minions. Thank you for listening.”
