UK Album Releases, October 22, 2012: Taylor Swift, Swedish House Mafia, Dappy, Kate Rusby

It’s a mixed bag for UK albums, as the release schedule starts to slow in preparation for the big race for the Christmas sales market. This week, Jake Bugg toppled Mumford & Sons from what looked to be a pretty comfortable reign at the top of the albums chart. But can he stay there for a second week or do any of this week’s releases have what to takes to shift him?

The strongest competition for Jake will be coming from across the pond, in the shape of the fourth studio album from Taylor Swift entitled Red.

She performed on the X Factor results show here last weekend and her last album, 2010’s Speak Now reached number six. Her profile has increased considerably since then, though – thanks in no small part to her contribution to the Hunger Games soundtrack. If anyone can shift Bugg from the top spot, we reckon it’s Taylor.

Yorke Attacks Ticket Touts


Radiohead Thom Yorke Kate Rusby

LATEST: Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is urging touts selling tickets for Friends Of The Earth's The Big Ask Live concert to donate profits to the charity. The JUST hitmaker is appalled by the number of tickets that have appeared at inflated prices on auction website eBay.co.uk, and is appealing to sellers to do the right thing and make a contribution to the cause. The tickets, which originally cost GBP55 ($94), are currently attracting bids of up to GBP300 ($510) for a pair. The concert will include performances by Yorke, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS' GRUFF RHYS and folk singer Kate Rusby. Yorke says, "Might I suggest that those selling their tickets on eBay for stupid money give a contribution... say 30 per cent of their proceeds, back to Friends Of The Earth, for whose benefit we are all doing this show. Seems only fair, unless you're shallow - don't you think?" A spokesman adds, "We have done everything within our power to ensure that fans had access to the tickets at the price fixed by Friends Of The Earth - for example by limiting purchases to two tickets per person."

Friends Of The Earth Disgusted By Ticket Touts


Radiohead Thom Yorke Kate Rusby

Environmental campaigners Friends Of The Earth are appalled ticket touts are trying to profit by selling tickets for their The Big Ask Live concert at hugely inflated sums. Within minutes of going on sale on Saturday (11MAR06), the GBP55 ($94) tickets were being sold on the internet for more than GBP300 ($500). A spokesman for the show, which will take place at London venue Koko on 1 May (06), says, "We have done everything within our power to ensure that fans had access to the tickets at the price fixed by Friends Of The Earth - for example by limiting purchases to two tickets per person. "It is extremely disappointing to find that some people are selling on tickets for personal gain - particularly as this is a charity event which has been organised to raise money and support for Friends Of The Earths' climate campaign, The Big Ask." The concert will include performances by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS' GRUFF RHYS and Kate Rusby. Yorke explains his incentive for supporting the campaign, saying, "It's good to get involved with something that's positive and constructive, rather then falling into the trap of thinking there is nothing you can do about climate change".
