Jack White is enjoying the view from the top again.  The rocker's new solo album, Lazaretto, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 after selling 138-thousand copies last week.

It's White's second consecutive chart-topper following his solo debut Blunderbuss, which sold almost the exact same number of copies in 2012.  This time around, however, White sold a record-setting amount of vinyl.  Fans picked up 40-thousand copies of the LP edition of Lazaretto, which sets the mark for the largest sales week for a vinyl album since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991.  Pearl Jam previously held the record with Vitalogy, which moved 34-thousand vinyl copies in 1994. 

During a recent appearance on Conan O'Brien's TBS talk show, White called the Ultra LP version of Lazaretto his "proudest moment" with his label Third Man Records. 

The deluxe edition includes a number of exclusive features, including bonus tracks hidden under the label and a hand-carved hologram that appears once the record starts spinning.
