The Rolling Stones back at top of album charts
Thursday 20 May 2010
The Rolling Stones are on course to have their first No 1 album for 16 years, sales figures suggest.
A revamped version of Exile On Main Street has sold 1,000 copies more than its closest rival, The Dance by Faithless. The album was a No 1 when initially released in 1972, and a documentary about its making was due to be given its premiere at Cannes yesterday. The Stones last topped the album chart in 1994.
Meanwhile Robbie Williams is set for one of his worst singles chart positions as the new version of "Three Lions" just made the Top 30. He provides vocals for an overhauled version of the football anthem.
The track also features a chart debut for the comedian Russell Brand.
