It's been over three decades, but Paul McCartney has done it again.

Less than two weeks after its release, Paul McCartney's latest album Egypt Station is No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. It's his first album in 36 years to hit No. 1, the last being 1982's Tug of War.

In its first week, Egypt Station sold 153,000 copies, 147,000 of those being traditional album sales and the remaining were online streaming.

Egypt Station is McCartney's 8th No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart.

At the beginning of September, McCartney announced a five-stop US tour, though at this point Minnesota is not one of the stops:

5/27 -- Raleigh, NC @ PNC Arena
5/30 -- Greenville, SC @ Bon Secours Wellness Arena
6/1 -- Lexington, KY @ Rupp Arena
6/6 -- Madison, WI @ Kohl Center
6/11 -- Moline, IL @ TaxSlayer Center

Santana went 28 years between 1971's "Black Magic Woman" and 1999's "Smooth."

Roy Orbison went 25 years between 1964's "Oh, Pretty Woman" and 1989's "You Got It."

The Beatles went 19 years between 1976's "Got to Get You Into My Life" and 1995's "Free as a Bird."

Aretha Franklin went 20 years between 1967's "Respect" to 1987's "I Knew You Were Waiting (for Me)."

Cher went 24 years between 1974's "Dark Lady" and 1998's "Believe."
