The latest album from Beck -- called Morning Phase -- has debuted at #3 on the Billboard U.S. albums chart. The studio album -- Beck's 12th -- hit stores and digital outlets on February 25 and racked up sales of 87,000 units during its first week. That's some 2500 more than his last album, Modern Guilt in 2008, despite the sales climate being slower these days.
Morning Phase also debuted #2 in Canada, #4 in the UK, #5 in Australia, Switzerland and The Netherlands, and #8 in New Zealand. These figures all represent Beck's highest historical chart positions ever in those countries -- except Canada, where Beck's album Guero also topped out at #2.
Beck is scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on March 12, and on The Ellen Degeneres Show on April 1.
