It topped the UK Albums Chart and was the ninth fastest-selling debut album of the 2010s in the UK, with over 103,000 units sold in its first week. In 2018, the album was certified Platinum with over 300,000 units sold in the UK. His second album, Why Me? Why Not, topped the UK charts upon its release in September 2019; his tenth chart-topping album, including eight with Oasis, it was the fastest-selling vinyl of 2019.
