Bon Iver competes with Lady Gaga for UK album chart top spot

Bon Iver is competing with Lady Gaga for the top spot in the UK album charts.
Great deals on musical instruments

Competition is heating up between pop star Lady Gaga and folk outfit Bon Iver as they tussle for the UK album chart number one position.

The self-titled album from Bon Iver is proving to be an unlikely smash hit with just 1,000 sales separating them from the piano playing fashionista.

It's the second album from the band, which is fronted by founder and electric guitar player Justin Vernon.

In comparison to their debut album, the quietly successful For Emma, Forever Ago, the follow up is a much more creative and metaphorical offering.

In a recent interview with the Guardian, Vernon, who has a studio packed with an array of music instruments, said: "For this record, but there were definite days where I felt like well, alright, I'm just going to have to try one of the hundreds of combinations of things in this room right now."

Take That's Progress, the biggest selling album of 2010, stormed back to the top of the charts after they released a special version that includes eight brand new tracks.

It has already sold 2.2 million copies.

A 'super deluxe' edition of Nirvana's classic studio album Nevermind is to be released in September to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
