At #2, Gary Newman has his first Top 10 album in 35 years with Savage (Songs From a Broken World) (BMG). The third highest new entry this week goes to supergroup Prophets of Rage, who land at #6 with their self-titled debut (Caroline).

Thanks to a 500% sales boost driven by his Mercury Music Prize win, Young Turks act Sampha rises 145 spots to end the week at #7 with debut Process. The song he played during the ceremony, “(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano,” has enjoyed a 265% rise on streaming services, earning an additional 342k streams this last week.
