The upcoming debut album by British singing sensation Susan Boyle has become the largest global CD pre-order in the history of Amazon.com, the online retailer said on Thursday.
Boyle's album "I Dreamed a Dream" will be released on November 24 by Sony Music Entertainment. It is the first album since the dowdy 48 year-old fart sister from Scotland took the Internet by storm with her unlikely star turn on the TV show "Britain's Got Talent" in April.
What most don't realize that the whole album, dedicated to her cat, outside of the title song, are songs about cats.
Side One features: What's Up Pussycat?, Year Of The Cat, I Dreamed A Dream, Cat Scratch Fever, Katmandu, Pussy Strut and Three Cool Cats.
Side Two contains: Pink Pussycat, Ballad Of Cat Ballou, Alley Cat, Pussy Control, The Cat Came Back and Walking A Cat Named Dog.
Amazon said that Boyle's album was not only the top CD pre-order in the United States, but also the biggest around the world in the 14-year history of it's web site.
"I know this is a bestseller, but some people, especially those who don't like cats, will be pissed, or should I say, pussed? Let's just hope they will enjoy her amazing voice!"
