Take That topple Band Aid 30 from UK Number One spot

Band earn their first Number One as a trio as Olly Murs secures his third Number One album

Take That are Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart this week with their single ‘These Days’.


‘These Days’ is the first single to be released by Take That following the departure of Jason Orange and appears on their new album ‘III’. Its success means that Band Aid 30 single ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’, recorded by artists including Chris Martin, Bono, One Direction, Emeli Sandé and Ed Sheeran, falls off the top spot after just one week.

Other new entries in this week’s Official Singles Chart today (November 30) include Labrinth (6), McBusted (10), James Bay (14), Years & Years (17), David Guetta (19) and Kiesza (20). Beyonce song ‘7/11’ is new at 28 while ‘The Hanging Tree’, a song taken from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and featuring vocals by actress Jennifer Lawrence, is new at 12.

Meanwhile, Olly Murs has scored his latest Number One in the Albums Chart with his fourth album ‘Never Been Better’. This is Murs’ third Number One album following ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ in 2011 and 2012’s ‘Right Place Right Time’.

Elsewhere in the Official Albums Chart, David Guetta is new at Number Eight with his album ‘Listen’ while Susan Boyle’s ‘Hope’ is new at 13.

There are a further seven new entries in the Official Albums Chart Top 40 starting with Boyzone, who are at Number 14 with Motown covers album ‘Dublin To Detroit’. Other new entries come from Dave Arch & The Strictly Band (22), Jools Holland (25), Barry Manilow (28) and Mary J Blige (40).
