Florence And The Machine Score First Number One Record


Florence + the Machine have scored their first number one record after moving 137,000 units of How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful in its debut week. The LP bumped A$AP Rocky out of the one spot on the Billboard 200.

"What Kind of Man," the lead single, peaked at number eight on the Alternative Songs chart, and number seven on Hot Rock Songs.

In 2011, Florence sold 105,000 copies of its second album, Ceremonials, good enough to earn the sixth spot on the chart. Their 2009 debut, Lungs, peaked at number 14.
F+TM have a fall tour scheduled for the U.K. and Ireland. Tickets are on sale now.
