Rush Of Blood To The Head

29/Aug/2014

Just over a year after forming, Brighton garage rock duo Royal Blood see their self-titled debut album land at No1 on this week's Album Chart.


Ariana Grande misses out on the top spot, arriving as runner-up with her second album 'My Everything' - an improvement on the No6 debut for her first album 'Yours Truly' this time last year. Ed Sheeran and Sinead O'Connor both drop two places to accommodate the newcomers, to No3 and No4 respectively. With massive publicity surrounding her first live shows in 35 years, Kate Bush makes serious inroads on the chart this week. Her 1986 compilation 'The Whole Story' leads the charge, up from No34 to No8, while there are re-entries for 'Hounds Of Love' (No18), '50 Words For Snow' (No46), 'The Sensual World' (No80), 'The Kick Inside' (No89) and 'Director's Cut' at No96.

After climbing to No29 last week on the strength of streams, Lilly Wood & Robin Schulz leap to No1 on this week's Singles Chart with 'Prayer In C', thanks to the song's new availability to download. Milky Chance dip to No2 after two weeks at No1 with 'Stolen Dance', while Taylor Swift jumps from No14 to No3 with 'Shake It Off' - matching her previous best on this chart for 'Love Story' in 2009. Ariana Grande has this week's highest climber with 'Break Free', up from No42 to No9, while highest new entry honours are awarded to Maroon 5 with 'Maps' at No22.
