Plant Takes Root At No1


With over forty-five years of recording behind him, Robert Plant achieves his first Irish No1 as a solo performer with his tenth studio release 'Lullaby and ...The Ceaseless Roar' landing at the top of this week's Album Chart.

He presides over a trio of new releases in the Top Ten, the second of which goes to Ryan Adams at No5 for his eponymously titled fourteenth studio release. This gives Ryan his best ever performance on this Chart - previous best was his last release, 2011's 'Ashes & Fire' which debuted at No7. Interpol complete the trio taking their fifth album 'El Pintor' in at No6 - their previous best was 2007's 'Our Love To Admire', their only Irish No1. Outside the Top 10, U.S. singer-songwriter Banks gets a Top 30 entry for her debut release 'Goddess' which enters at No23.

Lilly Wood & Robin Schulz climb one place this week to return to the top of the Singles Chart giving 'Prayer In C' a second week at No1. G.R.L. also climb a place, up to No2 for 'Ugly Heart', while 5 Seconds Of Summer are this week's highest climber - up 52 places to No3 for 'Amnesia'. The only brand new entry in this week's Top 50 is at No19 for Calvin Harris with 'Blame' (feat. John Newman) - a nineteenth appearance in the Top 30 for Harris and a fourth for Newman.
