The Official Charts Company have confirmed that British vocalist John Newman’s debut album Tribute has entered the top spot of the UK album charts this week.

Newman, who first caught the attention of the masses with his Rudimental collaborations, has enjoyed recent success with his solo releases Love Me Again and Cheating, both charting high (the former hitting No 1 in the Official Singles Chart in May 2013).

The rest of the Top 5 albums are also new entries, with Paul McCartney, Cher, Pearl Jam and Jonathan and Charlotte all featuring.

On the singles-side-of-things, OneRepublic return to No 1, knocking Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball off the top-spot (which moves to number two). James Blunt climbs up the chart with new single Bonfire Heart, whilst new releases from Lawson and Eminem make up the rest of the Top 5.
