Burke attempts to squeeze a few more sales out of debut

Alex Burke has announced her second album will be her first album, but with a couple of other singles on it. You could call it a deluxe version of Overcome; you might also call it a cheap buff-job on an an album whose disappointing sales leaves a lot of room to push again.

The decision to basically offer last year's album into this year's Christmas market suggests that there's not much faith in Burke's career as anything beyond a dwindling singles artist at SyCo HQ. But, hey, there's still the adverts aimed at sweaty types to bring the cash in.

Funny you should say that; I was in HMV on Saturday and noticed Susan Boyle's album in the bargain bin for £3. My first assumption was that they were getting rid of the old stock in preparation for a 'deluxe' version to be released at Christmas.

A dwindling singles artist, Simon? The charts this week would beg to disagree...
