FLIPOVER FRIDAY: NEW ARRIVALS AT iTUNES & APPLE MUSIC

Marcus Mumford and BLACKPINK lead a Top 10 of all new arrivals at iTunes this Flipover Friday, and country records are doing especially well this morning.

Mumford’s solo debut, (self-titled) (Capitol), opens at #1, while BLACKPINK’s second album, BORN PINK (YG/Interscope), is the only rookie in the Top 15 of sales and streams; it’s #2 at iTunes and #11 at Apple Music.

At #3, Drake Milligan’s Dallas/Fort Worth (This Is Hit/Stoney Creek) leads the country contingent that also includes Hell Paso (Yellabush/Columbia), from country-rock genre-bender Koe Wetzel, at #4, Little Big Town’s Mr. Sun (Capitol Nashville), rising at #9, and Mitchell Tenpenny’s This Is the Heavy (Riser House/Columbia Nashville), hitting #10.

Asbury Park, N.J.’s FLETCHER is #5 with Girl of My Dreams (Capitol). Death Cab for Cutie’s Asphalt Meadows (Atlantic) paves over #6, Clutch’s Sunrise on Slaughter Beach (Weathermaker) awakens at #7 and Electric Callboy’s TEKKNO (Century Media) lights up #8.

The rest of the Top 40 is packed with new titles from such acts as The Mars Volta, Noah Cyrus, Ringo Starr, Julian Lage, Samara Joy and Lang Lang.

The lone new entry in the Top 10 at Apple Music is EST Gee’s I Never Felt Nun (CMG/Warlike/Interscope), at #10. Sixth graders in Catholic schools across the country are convulsing in laughter over that title.
