Five number one albums


Kasabian have scored their fifth straight number one record as they put an end to Ed Sheeran’s two-month reign at the UK album charts summit.

The Leicesters­hire band’s sixth studio album, For Crying Out Loud, collected 52,000 combined chart sales in its opening week, around 5,000 ahead of Sheeran’s Divide.

Guitarist and songwriter Serge Pizzorno called the achievemen­t “incredible”.

He told Official Charts: “It’s absolutely incredible to have five Number 1 albums in a row. Thanks to everyone who has supported us. We can’t wait to play the new tracks on the road this summer.”
