    Springsteen Album No. 1 on Charts
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Bruce Springsteen's ``The Rising'' has risen to No. 1 in its
    first week, selling about 526,000 copies.

    The figures, released Wednesday by Nielsen SoundScan, represent the best debut
    of Springsteen's career.

    The critically acclaimed disc is his first studio album in seven years; most of
    the songs on it revolve around the Sept. 11 attacks.

    The singer has been on a media blitz to promote the disc. He appeared on the
    covers of Time and Rolling Stone, and was featured on ``Nightline,'' ``Late
    Night with David Letterman'' and ``Dateline.'' The ``Today'' show went to his
    adopted hometown of Asbury Park, N.J., for a live Springsteen performance.

    He kicks off a U.S. tour Wednesday night in East Rutherford, N.J.

    This is the third Springsteen album to debut at No. 1 (``Greatest Hits'' and
    ``Live 1975-1985'' also bowed in the top spot).
