The first Pet Shop Boys number 1 album since 1993?
Posted at 11:49 AM, 24 March 2009 -

Today's midweeks are looking very promising for the new Xenomania-produced Pet Shop Boys album. From Music Week:
Pet Shop Boys are facing a close battle with Ronan Keating as they look to score their first number one album in the UK in more than 15 years.

The duo’s new Parlophone-issued album Yes is presently around 1,200 units ahead of Keating’s Polydor release Songs For My Mother, according to early retail reports, but the story is made more complicated by the PSB album having accidentally ended up on iTunes three days early last week.

It is understood around 2,500 sales of the album achieved on the Apple site following its premature release there last Friday will not count towards this coming week’s chart as they will be recognised as sales from last week instead.

Pet Shop Boys, who won the outstanding contribution award at this year’s Brits, have only topped the albums chart once before. Very reached number one in October 1993.

Top 5 albums right now:


1 Yes PET SHOP BOYS 11,595
2 Songs For My Mother Ronan Keating 10,352
3 Only By The Night KINGS OF LEON 7,777
4 The Fame LADY GAGA 7,298
5 The Collection ANNIE LENNOX 6,467
