British rock mainstay Iron Maiden earns the fifth U.K. No. 1 album of its career -- over a span of 33 years -- with The Book of Souls (Parlophone). The new No. 1 single in the market is London-based DJ Sigala's "Easy Love" (Ministry of Sound), which samples the Jackson 5's "ABC."
New data from the Official Charts Company today (Friday) showed the Iron Maiden album recording combined chart sales of just over 60,000. The band first topped the survey in 1982 with The Number of the Beast. Jess Glynne's I Cry When I Laugh (Warner Music), which topped the chart two weeks ago, held steady at No. 2, while last week's No. 1, The Weeknd's Beauty Behind The Madness (XO/Republic/Universal Island), fell to No. 3.
Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour (Capitol/Universal) improved 5-4 in its 68th week, while Polydor/Universal's South African-born, Australian-raised Troye Sivan came in at No. 5 with Wild. There was a No. 6 debut for Las Vegas metal band Five Finger Death Punch with Got Your Six (Eleven Seven).
