Talent show discovery Susan Boyle has seen her new album become the biggest CD pre-order in the history of global online retailer Amazon.
The West Lothian singer's debut album, I Dreamed A Dream, is to be released by Sony Music Entertainment on Monday.

Amazon said Boyle's album was the biggest CD pre-order in the 14-year-history of its website.
Julian Monaghan, head of music buying at Amazon.co.uk, said: "Just eight months ago, no one was aware of the talents of Susan Boyle.
"Now, she has generated more Amazon pre-order CD sales globally than any other artist.
"That is an incredible achievement and is testament to the fact that she has captured the hearts of people all over Britain, America and the rest of the world."
Steve Barnett, chairman of Boyle's record label, Columbia Records, part of Sony Music, said: "One of the things that is so unique about Susan Boyle is her ability to touch people around the world.
"We're excited that I Dreamed A Dream holds the new record for global pre-orders and that Amazon's customers have supported her album in this way."
