Harry Styles has set a new record for first-week vinyl sales with Harry’s House, as Billboard and The New York Times report. His third album sold 182,000 copies, the most since Luminate began tracking that data in 1991. Taylor Swift previously held the record with last fall’s Red (Taylor’s Version), which sold 114,000 vinyl copies in its first week.
Harry’s House debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 upon its release, moving 521,500 album equivalent units. Styles has recently covered Wet Leg’s “Wet Dream” during his BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session. He’ll tour North America beginning in August, following a summer run in Europe.
