Garbage Debits at 14 With "Strange Little Birds", Lowest Since Debut Album

by VVN Music

Garbage returns with their first album in just over four years, Strange Little Birds, debuting at number 14.

That position is down one spot from 2012's Not Your Kind of People and is, in fact, their lowest charting album since their self-titled 1995 debut only went to 20. Since that time, they had three albums peak at 13 and one, Bleed Like Me, that went to number 4.

Strange Little Birds tops the Independent, Rock and Alternative Albums charts.

Two different versions of Paul McCartney's new compilation, Pure McCartney, debut with the Deluxe Version starting at 43 and the 2-CD set at 80. That falls far short of his last collection of hits, 2001's Wingspan: Hits and History, which peaked at number 2.

Van Morrison premiers at 120 with his archive live album ...It's Too Late to Stop Now...Volumes II, III and IV which collects more shows from the same series as on 1974's It's Too Late to Stop Now. The earlier album peaked at 53.

At 130 is the first album from the new duo of Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle. Colvin & Earle. For Colvin, the album just falls short of her 2012 set All Fall Down while the album is low for Earle who regularly debuts in the top 40.

On the Billboard Hot 100, Justin Timberlake move up 3 to 2 with his former chart topper Can't Stop the Feeling!
