Hozier's Back


Hozier climbs back to the top of the Album Chart this week from last week's No2 - his first time at No1 since last October.

Ed Sheeran's 'X' drops from the top to No2 while third place goes to Dublin duo Hudson Taylor with their debut album 'Singing For Strangers' - one of four new entries in the Top 10. Fall Out Boy arrive at No6 with their sixth studio album 'American Beauty/American Psycho' - just below their previous best, No4 for 'Save Rock And Roll' last year. Still dominating the Singles Chart, Mark Ronson lands on the Album Chart this week with 'Uptown Special' at No7, a new personal best on this chart ahead of the No16 peak for his previous release 'Record Collection' in 2010. The fourth and final new entry is at No10 for The Waterboys with 'Modern Blues', the band's eleventh studio album in more than thirty years and their most successful since 1993 when 'Dream Harder' reached No7.

There's no change at the top of the Singles Chart, with Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars taking a sixth week at No1 with 'Uptown Funk!', ahead of an unchanged Top 5 with Ed Sheeran, Hozier, Olly Murs and Taylor Swift holding steady. With her first album 'Title' released today, Meghan Trainor has this week's highest climber, up from No46 to No7 with 'Lips Are Movin' - the follow-up to her Grammy Award-winning debut 'All About That Bass' (No10 this week). Also moving swiftly in the right direction, up from No23 to No9, is last week's highest new entry - Sia's 'Elastic Heart'. Just outside the Top Ten, Philip George climbs 15 places from No26 to No11 with his debut release 'Wish You Were Mine'.
