Radiohead Takes Number 1 Convincingly Over Red Hot Chili Peppers in Britain

by VVN Music

Radiohead has very convincingly beat out the Red Hot Chili Peppers for the top spot on this week's British Albums chart.

Not only did A Moon Shaped Pool top the Albums, but also pure Album Sales, Physical Album Sales, Record Store Sales and Independent Album Sales. RHCP's The Getaway only topped the Album Downloads chart, which makes sense as, although A Moon Shaped Pool is newly released on CD and vinyl, the digital version of the album was released in May.

The Getaway opens at number 2, their first album to not reach the top since 1999's Californication. Since then, By the Way (2002), Stadium Arcadium (2006) and I'm With You (2011) have all gone to number 1.

The resurgence of Rick Astley continues to amaze as 50 only drops 1 to 3 in its second week.

At 6 is Mumford & Sons with Johannesburg. While Mumford released their first album in 2009, its their partner, Baaba Maal, that qualifies the album as from a veteran artist. Maal is a singer and guitarist from Senegal who released his first album in 1989.

The trio of Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs start at 28 with case/lang/veirs. This is Veirs first trip to the British charts and the second for Neko Case who went to 63 in 2013 with The Worse Things Get, The Hard I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You. For lang, it is her eleventh trip to the list and her highest charting since Invincible Summer (2000 / #17).

The Swans are in at 61 with The Glowing Man, their third album to chart in Britain but the first since 1989's Saved. The Glowing Man is the highest charting of the three.

On the singles chart, there are now two veteran artists in the top ten. Justin Timberlake continues to hover near the top with Can't Stop the Feeling sitting at number 3 and, at 9 is Give Me Your Love by Sigala Featuring John Newman and Nile Rodgers.
