All Time Low have scored their first ever Number One album.
The US pop-punk band released their sixth album ‘Future Hearts’ on Monday (April 6) and beat off competition from the likes of James Bay and Ed Sheeran to claim this week’s top spot, the Official Charts Company reports.
The band commented on securing the Number One: “This is a huge surprise! We didn’t expect this kind of reaction to the album and we couldn’t be happier. After so many years together, we never want to let our fans down, and this feels like a massive achievement on their part as much as ours.”
Elsewhere in the albums chart, Derbyshire band Drenge entered the Top 20 with their second album ‘Undertow’. The record was the second-highest new entry, placing at Number 14. Beach Boys’ singer Brian Wilson also found his way into the upper echelons of the chart, with his new album ‘Pier Pressure’ entering at Number 25.
In the Official Singles Chart, Jess Glynne beat Nick Jonas to claim the top spot for the third week in a row, with her single ‘Hold My Hand’. The Clean Bandit collaborator’s track was streamed over 1.74 million times this week, leaving it 5,000 chart sales ahead of Jonas’ ‘Jealous’, which finished at Number Two.
The Top Five was completed by Years & Years at Number Three with ‘King’, James Bay at Number Four with ‘Hold Back The River’ and Ed Sheeran at Number Five with ‘Bloodstream’. The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie charted at Number Six with his version of Adam Levine’s ‘Lost Stars’, making him the highest-placed artist from the series, beating Andrea Begley’s Number 30 position in 2013.
