Congratulations to Blossoms, who storm to Number 1 on this week’s Official Albums Chart with their new record Foolish Loving Spaces.
It earns the Stockport band their second chart-topping album following their self-titled debut in 2016. Their second collection, Cool Like You, peaked at Number 4 in 2018. Foolish Loving Spaces is also this week’s best-selling album on vinyl.
Celebrating the news, they told OfficialCharts.com:
“Our second Number 1! We are delighted. Thanks to everyone who bought it. You’ve made us five the happiest lads in the world.”
Last week’s Number 1, J Hus’s Big Conspiracy, slips to 5, and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson lands at Number 4 with his debut album Walls.
Outside the Top 10, Taylor Swift’s former chart-topper Lover surges 25 places to Number 14 following the release of her documentary Miss Americana on Netflix. Two more Taylor albums feature in this week’s Top 100: 2014’s 1989 at Number 70 and 2016’s Reputation is at 96.
Liam Gallagher occupies two slots in this week’s albums Top 40; his new Acoustic Sessions collection lands at Number 24, and his Why Me Why Not album rebounds 49 places to Number 31.
