'Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own' is the new UK No.1 single - and
marks the first time a U2 album has produced two No.1 singles in the UK.

The second single from 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb', 'Sometimes...' has
hit the top spot in its first week of release and is U2's sixth No.1 single
in the UK.

The first single from the album, 'Vertigo', topped the charts in the Autumn and the album has now sold more than 8.5m copies worldwide.

Although U2's third album 'War' was a No.1 hit back in 1983, they didn't achieve a No.1 single until Desire, from the album 'Rattle and Hum'. Subsequent UK No 1's were The Fly ('Achtung Baby'), Discotheque ('Pop') and Beautiful Day ('All That You Cant Leave Behind').
