Muse hits number 1 in the UK with album that integrates NFT technology

Not everyone is skeptical about NFT and, as evidence, Muse became the first band to top the UK charts with an album that features NFT technology.

Will Of The People arrived on Friday, August 26th, and is the ninth studio album by the English band.


It went public on August 26 and sold 51,500 copies in its first week. Will Of The People by English band Muse managed to become the first British album to integrate NFT technology and to reach number one in the UK charts.

In addition to traditional formats such as vinyl, digital, cassette and CD, Muse’s Will Of The People also became public in the form of NFT. The latter was limited to 1,000 copies worldwide, so its UK sales accounted for at most 1.96% of the total.

Despite reaching number one, the album Will Of The People was not the first to be released in NFT format, as rapper Manchester Aitch had already released his copy. According to The Guardiandebut album Close to Home was released a week before Muse’s record and reached No. 2 on last week’s chart.

Last month, The Guardian also shared that NFT albums have been eligible for the charts for a few months now. However, it is only now that they are being sold. Muse’s Will Of The People was sold through the NFT Serenade platform, while Manchester Aitch’s Close to Home was sold on LimeWire.

The digital edition of the Muse album, which is now out of print, included a downloadable version of the album, and guaranteed alternate cover art and a digital signature from the band members.
