well this must have done better than Alive surely?
Many miles many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

In America it did better because alive wasn't even released but in the UK sweet talker hasn't sold anywhere near as much as alive which is certified gold and on its way to platinum whereas sweet talker is silver.

Yeah, generally 'Sweet Talker' did better, but in UK 'Alive'.
She didn't promote album in UK at all, only on Graham Norton Show where she performed 'Masterpiece'.
By the way, 'Alive' is now available on US iTunes, and 'Ain't Been Done' is next single, not sure if it's only for Australia.

I'm sooooo happy for that success there. But on the other side why the hell did she choose "Ain't Been Done" as the new single? :oops:

I'm guessing the era is done now that the tour is. That makes sense and she's put a long message on Instagram saying that she needs to take a break and go away for a while now before she puts new music out.

What were the albums sales in the US and UK in the end?

Yeah, it's end of the era. Sadly, 'Sweet Talker' wasn't released as a single.
At the end of her last show in Paris, she said "I'll be back soon with the best album I've ever done"

In UK barely over 60,000, in US I guess 80,000-100,000

God. So it didn't sell half as much in the US as who you are did. Also, it sold a tiny fraction of what the previous 2 did in the U.K.

If it did sell 140k in the US then actually that's not too bad. Yeah ok she had a 5x platinum single but that was never going to sell any one of their individual albums it was put on. I just think she needs to focus on making an album that people feel they need to own as a body of work rather than oh I like bang bang I'll download that, oh I like masterpiece from pitch perfect I'll download that.
