Florence + The Machine return to No. 1 on the UK album chart
After headlining Glastonbury on Friday night (June 26), Florence + The Machine have reclaimed the top spot on the UK chart with their latest album ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’.
Despite the mid-week chart count predicting a close call between Everything Everything and Wolf Alice for the No. 1 title, the Florence Welch-fronted group have returned to the top of the chart two weeks after debuting in the very same spot.
Wolf Alice’s debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ has debuted at No. 2, just 528 sales behind ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’.
‘Drones’ by Muse – last week’s No. 1 album – has now dropped to No. 3.
Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ is back in the Top Five at No. 4, up from No. 12.
Ed Sheeran’s ‘X’ is a non-mover at No. 5.
New entries to the rest of the Top 40 come from Everything Everything with ‘Get To Heaven’ at No. 7, Leon Bridges’ debut LP ‘Coming Home’ at No. 8, ‘Pageant Material’ by Kacey Musgraves at No. 11, and Mika’s ‘No Place In Heaven’ at No. 19.
Further down the chart are new entries from Jungle with their self-titled album back in at No. 31, Breaking Benjamin at No. 34 with ‘Dark Before Dawn’, Lindemann’s ‘Skills in Pills’ at No. 35, and ‘About The Young Idea: The Very Best of The Jam’ at No. 36.
