Brandon Flowers Blooms on U.K. Albums Chart With ‘The Desired Effect’.

Brandon Flowers made it two No. 1s from two solo albums in the U.K. last night (May 24), as The Desired Effect (EMI) entered at the top, 5,000 combined chart sales ahead of Paul Weller’s Saturns Pattern (Parlophone/Warner Music). In the singles chart, Felix Jaehn’s remix of Cheerleader by OMI held on to the number one spot for a fourth week, fending off competition from Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again featuring Charlie Puth, which rebounded one place to second.

He also has four chart-toppers under his belt as frontman with the Killers, who achieved the feat with 2004’s Hot Fuss, Sam’s Town in 2006, Day & Age in 2008 and 2012’s Battle Born. “Saturns Pattern” is Weller’s 16th top ten album since the former Jam and Style Council frontman started his solo career, and the tenth to make the top two. LunchMoney Lewis’ Bills was in third place, while Taylor Swift was the week’s highest new entry at number four with Bad Blood featuring Kendrick Lamar.

Last week’s No 1, Wilder Mind by Mumford & Sons, is down two places to No 3, Taylor Swift’s 1989, reaping the rewards of her a-list video for Bad Blood, is at No 4, while Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour completes the top 5. There were a few new entries in the top 10 – including the return of Faith No More, who scored their fourth UK top 10 album this week with Sol Invictus, in at No 6. The top 20 also held new entries for Hot Chip’s Why Make Sense (Domino) at No. 13, Blurryface (Fueled By Ramen/Atlantic/Warner) by Twenty One Pilots at No. 14 and Whitesnake’s The Purple Album (Frontiers) at No. 18.
