Jack Savoretti Is 'Singing To Strangers' With First U.K. No. 1 Album
The sixth album by singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti, Singing To Strangers (BMG), becomes his first to top the U.K. chart.
The Official Charts Company reports that Savoretti's album, which follows his top ten sets Written In Scars and Sleep No More, has first-week combined units of 32,000. Raised in London of Italian extraction, he released his first album Between The Minds in 2007.
Last week's No. 1, London rapper Dave's Psychodrama (Dave/Neighbourhood), falls into runner-up spot, while the previous bestseller, Tom Walker's What A Time To Be Alive (Relentless/Sony), rebounds 5-3. The motion picture cast recording of The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner Music) is back up 6-4, as is Queen's for Bohemian Rhapsody (Virgin/Universal), 7-5.
Also moving back in the right direction is George Ezra's Staying At Tamara's (Columbia/Sony), which marks a year on the chart with a 9-6 move; it has never been lower than No. 14 during that time, and all but three of its 52 chart weeks have been in the top ten.
Meanwhile, Lewis Capaldi's “Someone You Loved” (EMI/Universal) starts a fourth week at the singles summit.
The Capaldi single logs 7.32 million streams, more than one million ahead of Calvin Harris's “Giant” (Columbia/Sony), featuring Rag 'n' Bone Man, which starts its fourth straight week at No. 2. Mabel's “Don't Call Me Up” (Polydor/Universal) holds at No. 3, as Tom Walker makes the singles top five for the first time, augmenting his album success with a 10-4 climb for “Just You And I.”
Also making a first top five appearance are the Jonas Brothers, whose “Sucker” (Republic/Universal), which started at No. 6 two weeks ago, moves up two places from No. 7.
