Pink Floyd's last ever album went straight to Number 1.
And they’re back! By them, I obviously mean Pink Floyd and by back, I mean their new album , The Endless River, has topped the UK chart, making this the first Pink Floyd album in ten years to reach the milestone.
They did indeed beat One Direction!
They did give one hell of a teaser though, announcing that The Endless River would be their last ever album. How could fans resist buying it, after that kind of threat? On its release, The Endless River became the third fastest-selling by a single group or artist this year after shifting more than 139,000 copies during the last week.
The album is Pink Floyd’s sixth number one, but the band haven’t topped the chart since 1995’s Pulse. The largely instrumental album is a tribute to the band’s late keyboardist Rick Wright.
Elsewhere in the chart, Foo Fighters were also had a new entry at number two with the critically praised concept album Sonic Highways, while last week's chart topper X by Ed Sheeran slid two places to number three, according to Reuters.
Sheeran also featured in the singles chart, where his track Thinking Out Loud stayed in second place, ahead of One Direction's Steal My Girl, which climbed six places to third.
So I know this is a pretty big leap of faith, but if you did decide to spend your heard earned money on actual legally obtained music, which album would you go to?
