Razorlight's Johnny Borrell sells less than 600 copies of debut solo album in first week

Singer-songwriter Johnny Borrell, formerly of Razorlight fame, has just released his debut solo album and the first week's sales figures confirm that it shifted less than 600 copies.

'Borrell 1' sold a measly 594 units in the first week of its release according to the NME, despite receiving generally positive reviews from the music press.

Speaking about the collection of songs recently, Borrell explained that he was going for a 'party atmosphere' with the tracks: "It's an album that was born in the spirit of a party, and the arrangements for the songs come from that atmosphere."

Referring to the album's title, he added: "I didn’t want to be pretentious. It was just like, ‘OK, this is one. There you go.’ I didn’t want to come out with some sort of poetic title. The other thing that it suggests is that there may be more of them.” Whether that’s a good thing or not we’ll simply have to wait and see."
