Jack White has debuted in the top five on the Billboard 200 with his latest solo album, Fear of the Dawn.

The record, White’s fourth solo effort, lands at number four on the chart with a total of 42,000 equivalent album units, 39,000 of which were traditional album sales. That latter figure makes Fear of the Dawn the best-selling album of the week.

Prior to Fear of the Dawn, White had a streak going of three straight number-one solo albums, having debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 2012’s Blunderbuss, 2014’s Lazaretto and 2018’s Boarding House Reach. Outside of his solo work, White has one more number-one album: the 2019 Raconteurs release Help Us Stranger.

White will have a chance to start a new number-one album streak later this year with Entering Heaven Alive, his second solo record of 2022. That’ll be released July 22.

In the meantime, you can catch White live on his ongoing Supply Issues tour, which continues Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
