Arctic Monkeys just smashed Liam Gallagher’s record

The new Arctic Monkeys album went to Number 1 in the UK charts this weekend – making it a full house for the band. All six of their studio albums have hit the top spot.

 
But that’s not the only remarkable thing about the sales of Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino – the record is officially the fastest-selling vinyl album of the past 25 years.

According to the Official Charts Company, Alex Turner and co’s latest outing sold 24,5000 copies on vinyl last week, beating Liam Gallagher’s As You Were, which shifted 16,000 on its release in October 2017.
