David Bowie is almost guaranteed to be number one this Sunday with his new album ‘The Next Day’ set to become the fastest selling album of 2013 so far.

The comeback album is Bowie’s first studio release since ‘Reality’ in 2003 and features the singles ‘Where Are We Now?’ and ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’. The Official Chart Company reports that after just two days on sale, ‘The Next Day’s had sold 66,000 copies, just 5,600 copies behind the current fastest selling album of the year, Biffy Clyro’s ‘Opposites’. The Scottish band sold 71,600 copies of their album during its first full week on sale back in January.

‘The Next Day’ is also outselling the Number Two album, Bon Jovi’s ‘What About Now’, by nearly three copies to one and is far ahead of the current UK Official Album Chart topper from Bastille.

The only other new album entry due to land in the top 10 this week is ‘Exile’, the new album by Manchester duo Hurts. Albums in the Top 40 during the midweek update include new releases from John Grant, The soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s new film, Sound City, Stornoway and London-based Christian collective Worship Central.

Uncut is now available as a digital edition! Download it on your iPad/iPhone or Android device.
