Dreamland also entered UK charts on its opening week at #2, the highest new entry this week, and has charted inside the top 10 in Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. The album has clocked up 100 million streams in its first week of release and their single ‘Heat Waves’ is currently blowing up on streaming, with spots inside the top 10 on the Global and US viral charts.
The UK’s truly original and hugely loved band released Dreamland last week, and it’s been met with unanimous high praise across the globe. By entering the charts at #2, the band have achieved their highest ever scoring chart position, a massive 21 spots above their last album, Mercury Prize nominated How To Be A Human Being.
