Mumford and Sons Tops UK Charts
10/1/2012 @ 6:13 PMMumford and Sons' new album "Babel" is off to the best start of the year in the folk rockers' native U.K. The Official Charts Company reports the disc sold 159,000 copies in its first week out and shot to number one on the album chart. The feat easily puts the Mumfords ahead of Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die" in the race for fastest-selling album of 2012. Del Rey's debut sold 117-thousand copies the first week it was released back in January. But "Babel" also gives the quartet the first number-one album of their career. Multi-instrumentalist Ted Dwane recently told "NME" that while "no one's going to wish against a number one record," he wasn't sure they'd be able to top Green Day's latest effort, "iUno!"
