Don Broco marks his first UK number one album with ‘Amazing Things’


Don Broco scored his first UK number one album with the new LP ‘Amazing Things’.

The Bedford rock band’s new record, which arrived last week (January 28), debuted at number one just 1,500 copies ahead of The Weeknd, whose latest album, ‘Dawn FM’, landed at number two after its release in physical formats.

“Wow, our very first number one album on the official UK charts!” Don Broco said after receiving news of his achievement. “Thank you so much to our fans for supporting us this week; we honestly couldn’t have done it without you. This one’s for you guys!

They added: “After so many hiccups along the way with the release of this album, finally releasing it and getting that Official Charts UK Number One album award means so much.”

With 98% of their total coming from physical sales, the group also topped the official vinyl album chart and record store chart.

‘Amazing Things’, the band’s fourth studio album, marks Don Broco’s third UK Top 10 album. Their second LP, 2015’s “Automatic,” peaked at number six, while their third, 2018’s “Technology,” landed at number five.

You can watch the group’s acceptance speech below:

“Amazing Things” was one of two new releases to enter the Top Five, alongside Jamie Webster’s second album, “Moments.” The Liverpool singer-songwriter’s new record was the most downloaded album this week in the UK, earning him the top spot in the official album downloads chart.

Ed Sheeran’s ‘=’ (Four) and Adele’s ’30’ (Five) round out the rest of the Top Five.

Other new entries saw Welsh rockers Scarlet Rebels land seventh with “See Through Blue”, marking their first Top 40 album. Jethro Tull landed his first Top 10 in 40 years, entering the chart at number nine with his 22nd studio album “The Zealot Gene”.

Meanwhile, on the UK singles chart, ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ by the cast of Disney’s Encanto continued its dominance, settling for a third consecutive week at number one.

The rest of the Top 5 includes: Firebox DML and “Peru” (Two) by Ed Sheeran, “ABCDEFU” (Three) by Gayle, “Surface Pressure” (Four) by Jessica Darrow and “Where Are You Now” by Lost Frequencies with Calum Scott (Five).
