Cohen bursts the Bubble


Since releasing his 2014 album 'Popular Problems' which reached No2, Leonard Cohen storms to No1 with his latest album 'You Want It Darker'.

With No1 albums under his belt including 2013's 'To Be Loved' and 2009's 'Crazy Love', Michael Buble misses out on another No1 spot, reaching No2 with his latest studio album 'Nothing But Me'. Lady Gaga takes No3 with her new release 'Joanne', resulting in last week's Kings (of Leon) dropping to No4 with 'Walls'. With a number of new albums making it into this week's Top20, Riptide Movement release their fourth studio album 'Ghosts' which debuts at No5, Elvis Presley & The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra take No6 with 'The Wonder of You' whilst Derek Ryan takes No7 and No8 with a double release; 'Happy Man' and 'This Is Me' following a week of touring and instore performances. Another homegrown artist takes No13 with a posthumous compilation - Joe Dolan & The RTE Concert Orchestra with 'Orchestrated: Vol 1'. Celebrated Slovakian violinist brothers Vladimir and Anton Jablokov enter this week at No15 with 'Vladimir & Anton Live' and the Original Cast Recording of Bowie's 'Lazarus'enters at No16. Final entries debuting outside of the Top20 include Korn's 12th studio album 'The Serenity of Suffering' at No24, Agnes Obel's 'Citizen of Glass' at No37 and Jimmy Eat World's brand new album 'Integrity Blues' at No41.

In this week's Singles Charts, we see one major change and only one new entry into the Top50. Little Mix's 'Shout Out To My Ex' climbs from No6 to No1, pushing each of last week's Top5 down a slot. With James Arthur now at No2 with 'Say You Won't Let Go', Chainsmokers feat Halsey drop to No3 with 'Closer'. Sia & Kendrick Lamar take No4 with 'The Greatest' and Calvin Harris drops to No5 with 'My Way'. At No26, this week's only new entry is 'Rockabye' from Clean Bandit feat Sean Paul & Anne-Marie.
