Rod Stewart has headed to the top of the Irish album charts with his new retrospective collection.

The 74-year-old British music star recorded You're In My Heart with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It features orchestral reworkings of his classic hits plus new track Stop Loving Her Today.

The album rockets from last week's number 12 to the top of the charts following his two sold-out shows at Dublin's 3Arena on December 4 and 5.

Lewis Capaldi's Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent retains second position in the chart, while Dermot Kennedy's Without Fear has dropped two places to third.

Christy Moore's Magic Nights and Bing Crosby's Bing at Christmas round off the top five.

In the Irish singles charts, Lewis Capaldi holds strong at number one for the third week with Before You Go.

Dua Lipa's Don't Start Now stays in second place.

Stormzy ft. Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy's collaboration Own It is in third position, with Billie Eilish's Everything I Wanted and Maroon 5's Memories in fourth and fifth respectively.

Harry Styles is the highest new entry on this week's singles chart with Adore You from his new album Fine Line, coming in at number six.

Meanwhile, on the Irish homegrown chart, after two weeks away from number one, Dermot Kennedy's Outnumbered takes back the top spot.

Niall Horan's Nice To Meet Ya is in second position, while the Mullingar star's latest track Put A Little Love On Me debuts in third.

Dermot Kennedy's Rome and Picture This's One Night take the fourth and fifth spots respectively.

And with Christmas rapidly approaching, nine festive favourites pull up their sleighs in this week’s Top 50: Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You (12); Last Christmas by Wham! (15); The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York featuring Kirsty MacColl (21); Brenda Lee’s Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree (31); Do They Know It’s Christmas from Band Aid (35); Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande (39); Michael Buble’s It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas (40); It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year from Andy Williams (43) and Shakin’ Stevens’ Merry Christmas Everyone (44).
