5 Seconds of Summer claim their second U.K. No. 1 album as Calm (Interscope/ Universal) narrowly beats Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia (Warner Records) to the crown.

The 5SOS album, their fourth, finished just 550 combined units ahead of Dua Lipa, according to the Official Charts Company. The Australian heroes thus secure their second U.K. champion, after 2015's Sounds Good Feels Good. Lipa's No. 2 entry is still a personal best in the territory, beating the No. 3 peak of her self-titled debut. That set climbs 28-19, and Future Nostalgia is the week's best seller on vinyl, selling 3,000 units.

Insomnia (SKC M29), the collaborative album by Skepta, Chip and Young Adz, debuts at No. 3. The Weekend's renewed singles success is tempered by a 1-4 fall for parent album After Hours, while Lewis Capaldi drops 2-5 with Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (EMI/Universal).

There's a No. 6 start for Pearl Jam's Gigaton (Monkeywrench), as Canadian singer and producer Partynextdoor comes in at No. 7 with his third album Partymobile (Parlophone/Warner). Elton John's Diamonds compilation (Mercury/UMC/Universal) benefits from the iHeart Living Room Concert that he hosted last weekend with a 19-10 climb. The Frozen 2 soundtrack (Walt Disney/Universal) starts a second consecutive, and eighth aggregate, week atop the compilation chart.

Meanwhile, The Weeknd's “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic/Universal) climbs back 2-1 on the singles chart for its sixth aggregate week at the top.

“Blinding Lights” adds another 70,000 combined units to its account this week, including 7.6 million streams, to push Saint Jhn's “Roses” (B1/HITCO/Ministry of Sound) down to No. 2 after a two-week reign. Dua Lipa climbs 5-3 with “Physical,” 6-4 with “Don't Start Now” and enters at No. 6 with “Break My Heart” for a singles top ten hat-trick. Joel Corry's “Lonely” (Perfect Havoc/Asylum/Warner) dips 4-5.

Also new in the singles top ten are Little Mix's “Break Up Song” (RCA/Sony), which arrives at No. 9. and Mabel's “Boyfriend” (Polydor/Universal), up 11-10.
