Razorlight’s Johnny “Borrell 1” Sells…


…. just a few more copies than 1!

But not much. The former Razorlight front mans first solo effort, after a week of being available, has managed to shift 594 copies, despite favourable reviews.

However, a poor week of sales meant the album failed to make it into the Top 100 of the UK Official Album Charts. X Factor] contestant Jahmene Douglas reached the Number One slot with his debut album of covers ‘Love Never Fails’, which sold 19,000 copies.

Speaking about the his new band Zazou, with whom he recorded the album, Borrell told NME previously: “Fred [Stitz, bassist] was in the last line-up of Razorlight. We were playing big shows, the every Monday night we’d play blues and tango at this underground club with a bunch of kids who were totally disenfranchised from the mainstream, just hanging out. The band grew out of that.”
