Ed Sheeran has outsold the rest of the Top 10 combined to claim his fifth Number 1 album in Ireland with Equals, while Adele's Easy On Me spends its third week at the top of the Irish singles chart.

= (Equals) debuted at Number 1 and follows the success of Sheeran’s previous albums + (2011), x (2014), ÷ (2017, and places at Number 10 this week), and No.6 Collaborations Project (2019).

This week’s other big new entry is I Don’t Live Here Anymore, the fifth album from US rock band The War On Drugs, which debuts at Number 4, matching the peak of their last album, 2017’s A Deeper Understanding.

Last week’s Number 1, Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour, drops to Number 2, and in anticipation of today’s release of Abba’s new album Voyage, the group’s Gold - Greatest Hits album places at Number 8.

Meanwhile, Christy Dignam’s debut solo album The Man Who Stayed Alive re-enters at Number 19 after his performance of Down by the Salley Gardens on last week’s Late Late Show, and Richard Ashcroft’s retrospective Acoustic Hymns Vol.1 is new at Number 23.

Further down the album chart, two new releases land in this week’s Top 50: Hushed And Grim, the eighth album by US heavy metal band Mastodon at Number 27, and a 25th anniversary reissue of Spice Girls’ debut album Spice at Number 32.
