Mumford & Sons Join Coldplay With Million Album Sales Milestone
March 7, 2011
Mumford & Sons have become the first band since Coldplay to sell over a million copies of an album in the UK and US.
Sales of the band’s debut ‘Sigh No More’, originally released last year, have been boosted following a number of high-profile TV appearances.
The album was also named Best British Album at the BRIT Awards in London last month, prompting sales to rise by 266%, reports Music Week.
Coldplay’s last album ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’, released in 2009, was the last album to sell over a million copies on both sides of the Atlantic.
Mumford & Sons are currently working on their second record.
