Elbow Land Third No. 1 Album In U.K. With ‘Giants Of All Sizes’


British modern rock stalwarts Elbow land their third U.K. No. 1 album with Giants Of All Sizes (Polydor/Universal).

Elbow's banner week follows their previous triumphs with 2014's The Take Off And Landing Of Everything and 2017's Little Fictions. The new album, which also tops the vinyl sales chart, outsells its nearest rival, Ed Sheeran's No. 6 Collaborations Project (Asylum/Warner Music), by more than two to one.

Sheeran is up 3-2 as Lewis Capaldi's Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (EMI/Universal) moves back 4-3 and Post Malone holds at No. 4 with Hollywood's Bleeding (Republic/Universal). D-Block Europe's PTSD (D-Block Europe), which entered at No. 4 two weeks ago, moves back 6-5.

Two of the chart's longest-runners return to the top ten. Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack (Virgin EMI/Universal) climbs 12-7 in the week it marks a year on the bestsellers, while the motion picture cast recording of The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) is up 15-9. Freddie Mercury's Never Boring set (Virgin/EMI) debuts at No. 18 and Babymetal's Metal Galaxy (Ear Music) at No. 19.

Meanwhile, there's a third week atop the singles chart for Tones and I​'s “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch).

On the singles chart, Tones and I scores another 85,000 combined units, her best weekly total to date, which includes 9.4 million streams. Regard's “Ride It” (Ministry of Sound) is back up 3-2 and Harry Styles has the week's highest new entry with “Lights Up” (Columbia/Sony) at No. 3. Post Malone's “Circles” holds at No. 4 and last week's new entry at No. 2, Travis Scott's “Highest In The Room” (Cactus Jack/Grand Hustle/Epic/Sony), falls to No. 5.

Sheeran's “South of The Border,” featuring Camila Cabello and Cardi B, races 24-7, with Jorja Smith's “Be Honest” (Famm), featuring Burna Boy, rising 11-8. Capaldi gets his fourth top ten hit as “Bruises” improves 16-9, while “Post Malone” (Spinnin') by Dutch producer Sam Feldt, featuring Rani, is up 13-10.
