(PR) In its first week of release, "ALL THE LOST SOULS," the eagerly anticipated second album from Custard/Atlantic recording artist James Blunt, has hit the top spot in numerous countries around the world. The critically acclaimed collection has debuted at #1 in the UK, Canada, France, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Australia, and New Zealand. It has also landed in the #2 spot in Holland, Sweden, Spain, and Mexico. On the international iTunes front, the album is #1 in the UK, Canada, Germany, France, Austria, Belgium, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, and Spain.

In the U.S., where "ALL THE LOST SOULS" debuts at #7 on the Billboard 200/SoundScan chart, with over 92,000 sold, Blunt's digital sales represent a remarkable 24% of his total market share. Prior to its release, "ALL THE LOST SOULS" became the first-ever album on iTunes where the pre-order allowed streaming of snippets of every song before purchasing. Also on iTunes, the album's first single, "1973," was #1 during its entire first week of release.

"What is so satisfying about James's first-week sales is that it dramatically affirms his place as a global, career artist," said Atlantic Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman. "Not only has he evolved artistically, recording a brilliant album that represents musical growth on every level, but his fans around the world are welcoming him back in a huge way. To follow up a history-making record like 'BACK TO BEDLAM' is no easy task, and the out-of-the-box success of 'ALL THE LOST SOULS' is a tangible validation of James's enormous talent and of the power of true long-term artist development."
