Tame Impala score first UK Top 10 album

The Australian band's third album 'Currents' enters the Official Albums Chart at Number Three

Tame Impala have cracked the Top 10 of the UK’s Official Albums Chart for the first time.

The Australian band’s third album ‘Currents’ enters the chart at Number Three today, easily beating the peaks of their 2010 debut ‘Innerspeaker’ (Number 144) and 2012 follow-up ‘Lonerism’ (Number 14).

Tame Impala are held off the top spot by Years & Years, who claim a second week at Number One with their debut album ‘Communion’. Ed Sheeran’s seven-times platinum ‘x’ album holds steady at Number Two this week. Other high new entries come from former X Factor finalist Andrea Faustini, who lands at Number 11 with debut album ‘Kelly’, and Nick Jonas, whose self-titled album bows at Number 16.

Meanwhile, Little Mix’s ‘Black Magic’ continues to cast a spell over the UK’s Official Singles Chart, notching up a second week at Number One. ‘Are You With Me’ by Lost Frequencies climbs a place to Number Two, while ‘Shine’ by Years & Years slips a place to Number Three.

John Newman scores this week’s highest new entry, debuting at Number Five with ‘Come And Get It’, while Calvin Harris enters at Number Seven with ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, a collaboration with Disciples, which duly becomes the Scottish producer’s 19th Top 10 hit.
