Bruce Springsteen scores tenth UK No.1 album

Bruce Springsteen has debuted at number one in the UK with his new album High Hopes.

The singer scores his tenth UK number one album with the record, which serves as the follow-up to 2012 chart-topper Wrecking Ball.

The success of High Hopes now puts him ahead of the likes of David Bowie, ABBA, Queen and Michael Jackson, who each have nine UK number one albums.

Ellie Goulding slips to number two with Halcyon after two weeks at the top of the chart, while BeyoncĂ©’s self-titled album slips one place to number three.

Bastille’s debut Bad Blood rises to number four on this week’s countdown following its nomination for ‘British Album of the Year’ at the 2014 Brit Awards.

Meanwhile, Gary Barlow slips from three to five with Since I Saw You Last.

The only other new entry on this week’s chart is Irish singer and songwriter James Vincent McMorrow, who scores a personal best at number 28 with his second album Post Tropical.
