It also peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 in the United States. The album has sold over eleven million copied worldwide and has been certified ten times platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in the UK.[1] Back to Bedlam produced the singles "High", "Wisemen" and "Goodbye My Lover".
