Well, that’s really not much. And thinking about it, there has been no promo here in Germany either, but the album still made it to #5 (or #3, if you take the chart that works similar to the charts in other countries).the milkman wrote: ↑Sat Oct 10, 2020 9:05 pm
It sold 8.5k. I really don’t know what kind of promo they expected or wanted. It’s a live album released during a pandemic. It wasn’t going to get played on the radio.
The CD/Blu Ray was at my local Target for $13.99. Looks like it’s the same price on Amazon. My local record store had it on vinyl but I didn’t look for the CD. Don’t really see how it was hard to buy it. It just looks like the Cd only version wasn’t released here.
Streaming is free and it was streamed less than Dolly Parton’s Christmas album.
I don’t think, streaming works, when you don’t know about a release. I only found the new album on Spotify by looking for it. It hadn’t been on any playlist or ad there. On ITunes it was up front among the releases though, so easy to find.
All things considered, it appears that the US audience isn’t much interested. Or they’re just too busy with the pandemic and politics to enjoy music.
