Bruce Still On Top

24/Jan/2014

Bruce Springsteen takes a second week at No1 on the Album Chart with 'High Hopes', heading a Top 30 transformed by Tesco's clearance sale.


Ellie Goulding climbs a place to No2 ahead of the first of this week's price promotions - Madonna's 'Immaculate Collection' at No3. James Vincent McMorrow's 'Post Topical' drops down to No4 while Mumford & Sons' 'Babel' climbs 22 places to complete the Top 5, due again to price promotions. The sole new entry in this week's Top 30 is for Irish-American supergroup The Gloaming with their self-titled debut arriving at No6. This critically-acclaimed project brings together five virtuoso musicians - Martin Hayes, Iarla Ó Lionaird, Thomas Bartlett, Dennis Cahill and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Outside the Top 10 virtually every title is a re-entry thanks to prices as low as €1.

There's no change again at the top of the Singles Chart with Pharrell taking a fourth week at No1 with 'Happy', ahead of four other non-movers - Pitbull, Avicii, Ellie Goulding and Jason Derulo. Four months after their debut single 'Can We Dance' debuted and peaked at No21, UK pop quartet The Vamps have this week's highest new entry at No6 with the follow-up 'Wild Heart'. Also new to the Top 30 this week is Zedd's 'Stay The Night' (feat. Hayley Williams) - up from No34 to No8. This is Zedd's first appearance in the Irish Top 30, although 'Clarity' (feat. Foxes) reached No40 last year.
