It also set the album on a course to be Bowie’s ninth number 1 LP in the U.K. and his first since 1993’s Black Tie White Noise.

Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot said “Bowie is officially back! The Next Day is a true gift for all Bowie aficionados. It already sounds like a classic Bowie album – and its popularity this week is already showing that the great British public have taken it to their hearts.”

In second is Bon Jovi’s What About Now; however, it is only selling at about one-third the pace of the Bowie album.

An indication as to the sales in the U.S. should be available on Thursday or Friday of this week.
