Elvis Presley scores new chart record with 12th UK Number 1 album
By Justin Myers

Almost 40 years after his untimely passing, Elvis Presley has still got the charts – and the record books – all shook up.

If I Can Dream, a collection of Elvis classics featuring orchestral reworkings by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, tops the Official Albums Chart this week, giving The King his 12th UK chart-topping album.

This means Elvis now has more Number 1 albums in the UK than any other male solo artist, and puts him level with Madonna in second place for the most chart-topping LPs, behind the Beatles, who have 1
Receiving the award on Elvis’s behalf, the star’s former wife Priscilla Presley told OfficialCharts.com: “This is an album that Elvis always really wanted to do and he would have been so pleased to know his fans are still there and they continue to love his music. The most talented team put this album together and helped us all realise an unfulfilled dream.”

Elvis claims the Number 1 spot with 79,000 chart sales, giving him the second-fastest selling album of the year behind Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ Chasing Yesterday.

In the UK year end best selling album chart for 2002 'Elvis' 30 No.1 Hits' reached No.8. Looks like the IICD album will be in the Top 5 for 2015 giving it the highest year end Elvis album chart entry since 'The 40 Greatest Hits' in 1974 which reached No.4.

Apparently, the IICD advertisement is being shown at the Showcase Cinema Chain which has 17 locations throughout the UK as follows:

This also includes being shown prior to the new Star Wars film.

Great marketing move by Sony (UK).
