Punk pop veterans Green Day's new album Father Of All . . . has claimed the highest new entry in the new Irish album chart.
However, nobody can seem to dislodge Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, whose debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent notches up a tenth non-consecutive week at the top.
Elsewhere in this week’s albums Top 50, Dermot Kennedy has two entries, Without You (2) and Dermot Kennedy (11), and Rod Stewart’s new orchestral collection You’ve In My Heart rebounds back into the chart at Number 24 following its release on vinyl.
Further down the new chart, there’s a new entry from New York drill rapper Pop Smoke, who debuts at Number 46 with Meet The Woo Vol. 2, a mixtape that is quickly earning him recognition from UK drill heavyweights.
