Having now made history as the best selling debut album by a UK male artist in the last 10 years, the 2x-platinum certified collection was also one of the countryâs top 10 selling albums of 2011 and recently returned to the #1 position on the first UK Albums Chart of 2012. â+â will be released in North America later this year.
