Pink Floyd Float To The Top


Twenty years after the release of 'The Division Bell', Pink Floyd debut at No1 with the follow-up 'The Endless River', their fifteenth and final studio album.

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift swap places at No2 and No3 respectively this week, while Hozier is a non-mover at No4. Foo Fighters claim the next new entry at No5 with their eighth studio album 'Sonic Highways', their fifth consecutive Top 5 album in Ireland despite a short sales week due to their Monday release. Her first three solo albums all debuted and peaked at No2, but this week Cheryl Fernandez-Versini lands at No9 with her fourth 'Only Human'. Following the disappointment and controversy over his cancelled Croke Park gigs, Garth Brooks debuts at No12 with 'Man Against Machine', his ninth studio album and first new material in thirteen years. The fifth and final new entry in this week's Top 20 is at No18 for Queen with a new compilation 'Queen Forever'.

Ed Sheeran takes a third week at No1 on the Singles Chart with 'Thinking Out Loud', ahead of Meghan Trainor who takes a third consecutive week in the runner-up spot with 'All About That Bass'. One Direction climb back from No7 to No3 with 'Steal My Girl', chased by G.R.L. who also turn around, back from No6 to No4 with 'Ugly Heart'. Tom Odell claims his first Top 20 single in Ireland and this week's highest new entry at No16 with 'Real Love' - the theme to this year's John Lewis Christmas ad. The only other newcomer in the Top 40 this week is Sam Smith with 'Like I Can' at No31. His debut solo release 'Lay Me Down' failed to chart in Ireland, but the next three, taken from his album 'In The Lonely Hour', all made the Top 10 - including the No1 'Stay With Me'.
