Elvis Presley Breaks Record for Most U.K. No. 1 Albums By Male Solo Artist.

If I Can Dream, a collection of Elvis classics featuring orchestral re-workings by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, is the star’s 12th chart-topping album in the UK. The star’s former wife Priscilla Presley said: “This is an album that Elvis always really wanted to do and he would have been so pleased to know his fans are still there and they continue to love his music.

The Presley album had 79,000 chart sales, placing it second only in an opening week for a 2015 artist release to Noel Gallagher & the High Flying Birds’ Chasing Yesterday (Sour Mash). Meanwhile, Rod Stewart clinched his 34th top 10 album with Another Country new at number two, and Elbow frontman Guy Garvey is at number three with his first solo release Courting The Squall.

The boots are sold with an Elvis Presley Museum certificate of authenticity signed by Elvis’ friend of 22 years Jimmy Velvet, and a signed letter of authenticity from Charlie Hodge who appeared with Elvis on the NBC special, according to auction house Henry Aldridge & Son. Ed Sheeran’s x climbs back up three places to spend its 72nd week in the top 10 at number four, and Jess Glynne advances a place to return to the top five with I Cry When I Laugh.

The most talented team put this album together and helped us all realize an unfulfilled dream.” Presley is now level with Madonna for the most No. 1 albums in the territory, behind the Beatles on 15. Over on the singles chart, Adele’s Hello, which is the fastest-selling single of 2015 and last week set a new one-week streaming record with over 7.32 million listens, holds onto the number one position for a second week. Other new entries in the album chart include Erasure at number nine with their greatest hits compilation Always, former Britain’s Got Talent finalists Jack Pack’s self-titled debut at number eight and the soundtrack for Asif Kapadia’s Amy Winehouse documentary at number 19. After her record-breaking opening week of 7.32 million streams, Adele added a further 5.78 million this week and downloads of 121,000, for a combined chart sales tally of 179,000. “Hello” is already certified gold by trade body the BPI.

Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” (Def Jam/Universal) held at No. 2 on the new singles chart, with Sam Smith’s former No. 1 “Writing’s On The Wall” (Capitol/Universal) at No. 3.
