The Killers score fifth No 1 album
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.
