Florence + The Machine Edge Out Wolf Alice To UK No.1 Album Spot


Florence and the Machine Wolf Alice

In a very close sales race, Florence + The Machine have pipped Wolf Alice to the summit of the UK Albums Chart this weekend. Following a last-minute sales boost courtesy of her Glastonbury headline set, Florence won out over the indie newcomers by just 528 copies.

According the Official Charts Company, Florence’s third album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful had been at Number 4 when the midweek chart was announced before the festival began, but the power of her performance, which was broadcast on the BBC, saw a surge in sales to reclaim the top spot that it had achieved when it was released originally at the start of June.
