Fleetwood Mac, Extended Play (EP) (No. 48): After a 10 year wait, Fleetwood Mac has returned to the Billboard 200 chart with a new studio album. The legendary band’s Extended Play (EP) bows at No. 48, selling 9,000 copies in its first week.
The self-released set, issued on the LMJS imprint (an acronym for the first names of the four members of the band), is exclusive to iTunes. The four-song effort is the group’s first release outside of the Warner Music family of labels since 1971.
The band’s last full-length album, Say You Will, released on Reprise/Warner Bros., arrived on the chart almost exactly 10 years ago this week. The set debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the chart dated May 3, 2003. To date, it has sold 864,000 copies in the United States.
