Paul Simon scores first UK Number 1 album in 25 years

Paul Simon's latest greatest hits compilation 'The Ultimate Collection' has topped this week's Official UK Albums Chart.

The retrospective, which coincides with the singer/songwriter's UK tour dates with Sting, marks his first Number 1 album in 25 years, after 1990's 'The Rhythm Of The Saints'.

James Bay's 'Chaos And The Calm' stays at 2, while Ed Sheeran's 'X' is at 3 and Sam Smith's 'In The Lonely' is at Number 4 for its 47th week on the chart. Rounding off the Top 5 is new entry 'Glitterbug' by The Wombats.

Elsewhere, Tyler, The Creator's fourth album 'Cherry Bomb' is new at Number 16, while former X Factor winner Shayne Ward debuts at 17 with 'Closer'.

Further down the chart, new entries include Irish folk band Villagers at 27 with their third album 'Darling Arithmetic', LA singer-songwriter Beth Hart enters at 33 with 'Better Than Home', and Lulu's first studio album in a decade, 'Making Life Rhyme', debuts at 35.
