Will Daft Punk Score The Fastest Number One In Chart History?

Bookies slash odds...
Random Access Memories

Daft Punk could be on course to notch up the fastest selling album in the history of the UK charts.

It's been a long time coming. Daft Punk's previous studio album dropped back in 2005, and since then fans have only had a soundtrack project to placate them. Arriving with a carefully orchestrated PR campaign, 'Random Access Memories' has already become one of 2013's main talking points.

Now bookmakers are predicting that Daft Punk could score the fastest selling album in the history of the British charts. Oasis currently hold the record, with their equally hyped 1997 album 'Be Here Now'.

'Random Access Memories' has already notched up the most pre-order sales for a dance album in the history of Amazon, and it looks as if physical sales will follow suit.

Paddy Power place 'Random Access Memories' at 4/5 to become the quickest selling album of all time. In a statement, Paddy Power said: "They might not have a catchy moniker like the ‘Beliebers’, but fans don’t come much more passionate and excitable than Daft Punk enthusiasts so we’re expecting big things for the French DJs next week. We only hope that the success doesn’t go straight to their helmets."
