Former Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle has recorded the fastest selling debut album ever to top the charts this week. The Scottish singer sold 410,000 copies of her new album, beating the record held by Leona Lewis, who had previously surpassed Arctic Monkeys‘ 2005 debut ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not‘.
Boyle also entered the top 10 in the Singles chart this week with her cover of The Rolling Stones’ track ‘Wild Horses‘. Peter Kay’s charity single for this year’s BBC Children In Need is this week’s no.1.
Following the worldwide success of their third consecutive Number One album, Perfect Symmetry, Keane are pleased to announce details of a new eight-song EP and a tour of English forests.
The Night Train EP will be released on 8th May 2010. It features eight powerful new tracks which were written and recorded during the Perfect Symmetry world tour that saw the band playing to packed arenas in 28 countries, from Australia to Norway, Colombia to China and Lebanon to Switzerland. The EP takes its title from the band’s favoured mode of transport during the tour.
A feature length documentary film telling the story of Blur is due for cinema release on January 19th. “No Distance Left to Run” is directed by 32 (Dylan Southern & Will Lovelace) and is a Pulse Films production.
Filmed throughout the band’s 2009 rehearsals and acclaimed summer tour, No Distance Left To Run finds all four members of blur together for the first time in nine years. With previously unseen archive material alongside new interviews and reportage, the film recounts the highs and lows of a very British band from the late 80’s to their headline return at Glastonbury and Hyde Park. The result is a musing on Englishness and identity and a portrait of friendship and resolution.
