The Vaccines have triumphed over Two Door Cinema Club in their battle for the Official UK Album Number One.
The London band’s ‘Come Of Age’ took an early lead in Wednesday’s Official Chart update, and were ahead by 5,000 sales of TDCC’s ‘Beacon’ by the midway point. Two Door Cinema Club were hoping for a late surge in sales but were beaten by 11,000 copies, according to the Official Chart Company.
But both bands will likely be celebrating tonight, as they both secured their highest every position in the Official UK Album Chart. The Vaccines debut album ‘What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?’ peaked at Number Four, while Two Door Cinema Club’s ‘Tourist History’ reached Number 24.
Elsewhere in the UK Album Chart, Rita Ora’s debut album ‘Ora’ drops two places to Number 3, Emeli Sande‘s ‘Our Version Of Events’ is down two to Number Four and Ronan Keating is new in at Number Five with ‘Fires’.
Meanwhile, Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler’s latest solo album ‘Privateering’ is at Number Eight, Scouting For Girls also claim a Top 10 with their third album ‘The Light Between Us’ (10), while Cat Power’s ‘Sun’ is at Number 33.
In the UK Singles Chart, Ne-Yo saw off competition from The Script and Pink to secure Number One with ‘Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)’, his fifth UK Number One single.
The Script’s new single ‘Hall Of Fame’, featuring singer Danny O’Donoghue’s co-star on BBC’s The Voice, will.i.am, bags second place while Pink is at Number Three with ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’. Little Mix’s ‘Wings’ and Sam & The Womp’s ‘Bom Bom’ are at Four and Five respectively.
