Pink Floyd’s ‘Endless River’ Sets New Record for Amazon UK Pre-Orders

Pink Floyd, 'The Endless River'

In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Pink Floyd‘s new album ‘The Endless River‘ is selling like crazy in the band’s native U.K.

Advance purchases for the project, which serves as the first piece of new Pink Floyd product in 20 years and is said to be the band’s swan song, have topped the Amazon UK charts — and sold so many copies along the way that the album is now the most pre-ordered in the store’s history. “It’s an outstanding achievement for Pink Floyd,” enthused senior Amazon executive Steve Bernstein, adding that this latest achievement “proves they remain one of the most popular groups to grace the U.K. music scene.”

As Classic Rock Magazine reports, ‘The Endless River’ is outselling upcoming releases from a number of top British acts, including One Direction, Robbie Williams, Coldplay and Susan Boyle — not too shabby for a band that released its first album way back in 1967.

Meanwhile, as of this writing, Amazon’s U.S. store shows ‘The Endless River’ at No. 2 on the Best Sellers chart, sandwiched between Taylor Swift‘s ‘1989’ and Barbra Streisand’s ‘Partners.’ Might be time to step up your game, American Pink Floyd fans.
