New four-track EP debuts at #48 on Billboard 200 Albums chart, three other Fleetwood Mac titles also chart
Fleetwood Mac’s independent release Extended Play (EP) has debuted at No. 48 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. The release of the EP has also generated renewed interest in Fleetwood Mac’s back catalog with Greatest Hits (1988) ranking at No. 172, and Rumours (1977) and The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac (2002) reentering the chart at No. 149 and number No. 194, respectively.
Over on the Independent Albums chart, Extended Play makes an impressive debut in the Top 10 at No. 9. On Digital Albums, the EP comes in at No. 14. The EP debuts at No. 13 on Rock Albums and on the iTunes chart, it has peaked at No. 5.
Despite little fanfare and promotion, the first week numbers of the EP, quietly released on April 30, appear to have exceeded sale expectations, showing that there is still considerable demand for Fleetwood Mac to issue new material. The band has mentioned that it may release a full album in the future.
