Susan Boyle's New, Unreleased Album Already A Bestseller
Susan Boyle is set to repeat her end-of-2009 album success this year - the Scottish singer's new album has shot to the top of Amazon.com's Bestsellers chart more than a month before its release.
"The Gift" won't be released until November 9, but the talent show sensations is already assured of another big hit - fans are already desperate to pre-order the album.
Amazon's director of music Craig Pape tells Billboard.com, "It's the season of Susan and it's a pretty significantly number one. The Gift has leapfrogged fourth-quarter efforts by Taylor Swift, Eric Clapton and Neil Young on the bestsellers tally, with only pre-orders of Bob Dylan's The Witmark Demos coming close to Boyle's sales."
Boyle's 2009 debut "I Dreamed a Dream" broke records as Amazon Music's largest CD pre-order ever.
The new album will feature festive favorites "O Holy Night" and "The First Noel," as well as performances of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" - the song she was banned from performing recently on a TV talent show.
