Former Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell has confirmed the latest single to be taken from his debut solo album ‘Borrell 1‘ will be the double A-side ‘Cyrano Masochiste‘/’Each and Every Road‘.
The single is due for release on September 30th, and follows a disappointing opening spell for the parent album, which sold just 594 copies during the first week of its life last month.
Label Stiff Records took the news in good heart, releasing a statement soon after which read: “Stiff Records is proud to announce first week sales figures for its latest album – Johnny Borrell’s ‘Borrell 1′ – of 594. ‘Borrell 1′ is the début solo LP from the former Razorlight vocalist and is the first new album on the highly prolific Stiff Records since 2007.”
“First week sales of 594 makes ‘Borrell 1′ the 15,678th best selling album of the year to date,” comments a Stiff spokesperson. “So far we’ve achieved 0.00015% sales of Adele’s ’21′ – and 0.03% sales of this week’s No. 1 album from Jahmene Douglas – so we feel like it’s all to play for as we move into the all-important week two.”
