Johnny Borrell has sold 594 copies of his album. If he got £8.99 a copy, he's made £5340. Yeah!
It's not typical record company procedure, but this is Stiff Records, "where the fun never sets," - apparently.
The label sent out a hilarious press release this week, announcing the first sales figures for Johnny Borrell's - of Razorlight fame - first solo album, Borrell 1. It's actually the first new album that Stiff Records have put out since 2007 - and it sold just 594 copies. Given the Beatles reference in the title, it's probably not too serious.
But anyway, to put that into perspective, that's just less than The Voice winner Leanne Mitchell managed to shift.
