Björk’s Volta in US top ten

Björk’s new album Volta was in the ninth place on the US charts this week; the highest ranking of an Icelander. With Volta Björk broke her own record; in 2004 her album Medúlla reached the 14th place on the US charts.

Volta is currently in the seventh place on the UK charts, which is not Björk’s highest ranking to date; in 1995 her album Post reached the second place on the list, Morgunbladid reports.

Volta is currently the best-selling album in Norway, Denmark and Iceland and has enjoyed good sales in France and Japan and in all corners of the world on the internet through the iTunes music store.

Björk is on a tour in the US until May 26 to promote her new album. At the end of June Björk will begin her European tour. The singer began her world tour in Iceland at Easter.
