Lana's Honeymoon Period


With a surge of new releases in this week's Album Chart it is Lana Del Rey who wins the coveted Top Prize.

'Honeymoon' is her fourth studio release and her second to make it to No1. Last year's 'Ultraviolence' debuted at No2 while 2012's 'Born To Die' went straight in at the summit. Of the other twenty new entries this week David Gilmour takes the next slot at No2 for his first solo release for nine years - 'Rattle That Lock' - a better showing than 2006's 'On An Island' which peaked at No16. In third place is Glen Hansard's 'Didn't He Ramble' - his second solo recording. Lisa McHugh makes her first ever appearance in this Chart as her latest release 'Wildfire' gets a Top Ten entry at No7 while independently released Anderson also makes his debut as 'Patterns' hits the Chart at No11. Other notable new entries this week include Ryan Adams whose cover of Taylor Swift's '1989' album enters at No15 and Keith Richards who takes his first solo album for thirteen years - 'Crosseyed Heart' into the Top Twenty at No 19.

In contrast to this week's Album Chart, the Singles Chart remains relatively unchanged - with a Top 7 mirroring last week's chart. Justin Bieber holds on to the top spot for a fourth week with 'What Do You Mean' while Weeknd, Calvin Harris, Sigala and Walk The Moon all hold firm to make up the Top 5. Into the Chart at No14, the only new entry in the Top 40 - is Ellie Goulding with 'On My Mind' - the first track off her forthcoming album.
