Tesco to sell Faithless in its filling stations

By | Published on Wednesday 1 September 2010

Tesco has said it will start selling CDs in its petrol stations, though initially it will only sell one CD. Well one album, presumably they’ll sell more than one copy. Assuming they can find more than one person who wants it who hasn’t already got it.

‘The Dance’ by Faithless, which was only ever available in physical form via the supermarket giant, will now be stocked in their garages, too. The arrival of the album in the filling stations coincides with the dance sell-out’s previously reported advertising tie up with Fiat, which will see the car firm air ads that also flog the band’s record (or the band release a video that also flogs the car, depending on how you look at it).

It’s not clear if other CDs sold exclusively by Tesco will also be stocked in the supermarket chain’s garages. As previously reported, Girl Aloud Nadine Coyle recently entered into an exclusivity deal with the retailer regards her debut solo album.
