Take That's "Progress" album (Polydor/Universal), which debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. last November, powered back to the top yesterday (Sunday) after the release of a new version, augmented by a second CD featuring eight unreleased tracks. London rapper Example's "Changed The Way You Kiss Me" (Ministry of Sound) started a second week at No. 1 on the singles chart.
The Take That album had just passed U.K. sales of two million, according to Official Charts Company data, before the new edition was released. "Progress" climbed 11-1 on the new survey with sales of 77,000. Adele's "21" (XL Recordings) held at No. 2, selling 58,000 new copies, as the album generated a new top 40 hit with the 46-25 climb of "Set Fire To The Rain." Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" album (Interscope/Universal) stayed at No. 3, but Arctic Monkeys' "Suck It and See" (Domino) declined from last week's No. 1 debut to No. 4, with Adele's first album "19" steady at No. 5.
Paul Simon's "So Beautiful Or So What" (Hear Music/Universal) opened at No. 6, which compares to a No. 4 U.K. start for his last studio set "Surprise" in 2006. U.S. hip-hop duo Bad Meets Evil debuted at No. 7 with "Hell - The Sequel" (Interscope/Universal), while Dutch retro-pop sensation Caro Emerald's "Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor" hit a new U.K. peak, rising 17-8.
