For only the fifth time in his five decade-long career, Bob Dylan's new album Together Through Life debuted as the highest-selling album this week in the US. Thankfully, as if displaying a glimmer of hope for the future of the commercial music industry, Dylan outsold other chart-toppers Rick Ross and Miley Cyrus to claim the position of number one. Released last Tuesday, April 28, Together Through Life has already sold 125,000 copies in the US. Across the pond in the UK, the album debuted at #1 for the seventh time in his career.
