Bruce Springsteen Drops 1 to 2 in Britain as Ellie Goulding Regains the Top Spot

Bruce Springsteen couldn't fight off Ellie Goulding's Halcyon, the album that just won't stop.  It retakes the number 1 spot on the British charts in its 68th week of release, pushing Bruce's High Hopes to number 2 in its second week.

Gary Barlow continues his run in the top ten, no in its ninth week, with Since I Saw You Last dropping 5 to 6 while his Take That bandmate, Robbie Williams, drops 9 to 15.

New this week at 18 is Mike + the Mechanics' collection The Singles: 1986-2014, their highest spot on the charts since 1999's Mike & the Mechanics made it to 14.

The only other new album by a veteran artist this week is at 95, Mary Chapin Carpenter's Songs From the Movie.

Behind Goulding and Springsteen on the Album chart is Beyonce, Wanderlust by Sophie Ellis-Bexter and True by Avicii. The Singles chart is led by Rather Be by Clean Bandit Featuring Jess Glynne followed by Happy by Pharrell Williams and Wild Heart by the Vamps.
