Johnny Borrell's record label have announced that the Razorlight frontman's debut solo album is the 15,678th best-selling album of the year to date.

As previously reported, 'Borrell 1' shifted 594 copies in its first week of release and failed to make 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.

A tongue-in-cheek statement from Borrell's record label Stiff Records reads: "First week sales of 594 make 'Borrell 1' the 15,678th best-selling album of the year to date. So far we've achieved 0.00015 per cent sales of Adele's '21' – and 0.03 per cent sales of this week's Number One album from Jahmene Douglas – so we feel like it's all to play for as we move into the all-important week two. We might even break the Top 100."

Speaking about 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, then 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."
