ROCKFERRY DEBUT ALBUM IN-STORE IN UK SHIPPING OVER PLATINUM IN 1ST WEEK!
U.S. RELEASE SET FOR MAY 13th ON NEW MERCURY RECORDS LABEL
(March 5, 2008 - New York, NY) Young Welsh singer Duffy, whose debut album ROCKFERRY arrived in stores today in the UK only (already platinum), has captivated the nation with her current single "Mercy" now in its third week at #1 in the UK national chart. Amazingly, this was based on download sales only (which rose 33% in week two) as the physical single wasn't issued there until last week. The song is also #1 on the airplay chart for the fourth week running and #1 on both Radio 1 and Radio 2 netting the biggest weekly audience of any record in the UK so far this year with spins with an audience of 77 million.
