Avicii's new single Wake Me Up looks set to become the fastest-selling single of the year so far.
According to the Official Charts Company, the Swedish DJ and producer has clocked up the biggest opening sales of any single this year.
It has currently sold 123,000 copies since it went on sale on Sunday (July 14), shifting 88,000 units on the first day alone.
Wake Me Up has already smashed the previous record held by Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, which clocked up a first day tally of 57,000 copies in May.
If it can maintain its current sales, not only will Wake Me Up become the fastest selling single of 2013, it is also expected to overtake Blurred Lines' full first week sales tally of 191,000 copies before the weekend begins.
