When all the sales were tallied up for the week yesterday, David Bowie's The Next Day ended up at #1 on the UK album charts, selling 94,000 copies. This is his first #1 UK album since Black Tie White Noise in 1993.
Fans will be watching closely to see how the album does in other territories. In the US, he's apparently neck-and-neck with the new Bon Jovi album, What About Now. Amazingly, Bowie has never had a #1 album in America. Ever.
I don't have any figures for Canada, but I'm hoping he'll do well here, too. We'll find out late Tuesday/early Wednesday. Watch this space.
