The Killers score fifth No 1 al­bum

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

The Killers have be­come the first in­ter­na­tional act to score five con­sec­u­tive No 1 al­bums in the UK.

The US group’s new re­lease, Won­der­ful Won­der­ful, de­buted in the top spot ac­cord­ing to the Of­fi­cial Charts Com­pany.

Only three other groups – Oa­sis, Cold­play and Arc­tic Mon­keys – have achieved five No 1 al­bums in a row.

The Las Ve­gas-formed band, fronted by Bran­don Flow­ers, have also topped the Of­fi­cial Vinyl Al­bums Chart, and Won­der­ful Won­der­ful was the most pop­u­lar record of the week in UK in­de­pen­dent record stores.

Last week’s chart-top­pers, the Foo Fighters, have slipped one place to No 2 with Con­crete And Gold, while Ed Sheeran’s Di­vide is still at No 3.

Van Mor­ri­son’s Roll With The Punches is in at No 4, while En­ter Shikari round off the top five with The Spark.

Sam Smith’s Too Good At Good­byes is No 1 in the sin­gles chart for the third week.

He was al­most knocked off the top spot by Post Malone’s Rock­star, fea­tur­ing 21 Sav­age, fin­ish­ing the week at just un­der 700 sales and stream­ing equiv­a­lent ahead of the US rap­per.

Post Malone rose from No 5 last week to No 2 with his pop­u­lar track.

Dua Lipa is at No 3 this week with pre­vi­ous chart-top­per New Rules, Camila Ca­bello’s Ha­vana at No 4 and Lit­tle Mix’s remix of Latin Amer­i­can boy band CNCO’s Reg­gae­ton Lento at No 5.
