The numbers are in, and Jack White is once again sitting high and mighty atop his rock ‘n’ roll throne. Not only is Lazaretto the No. 1 album in the U.S., but the Ultra LP vinyl version just broke the record for biggest week of total sales.

According to White’s website, the Ultra LP sold 40,000 copies since its release, the biggest first-week total since Soundscan began tracking data in 1991.

Available now through Third Man Records, the Ultra LP features hidden tracks, different mixes, an etched hologram, and an assortment of other goodies. Click here for the full rundown.
