Elvis Presley Tops UK Album Chart for 12th Time

Elvis Presley If I Can DreamAlmost 40 years after his death, Elvis Presley has topped the UK album charts for a 12th time.

If I Can Dream is a collection of Elvis classics featuring orchestral reworkings by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

It means Elvis has had more UK number one albums than any other male solo artist.

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

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.”
