Bicep’s Isles (Ninja Tune) finished a close second. Further down, nun collective the Poor Clares of Arundel fly into the Top 5 with Light For The World (Decca) at #5, following the release of a digital deluxe version of the album featuring four new “chill mixes.”

On the U.K.’s Official Singles chart, Evans—who kick-started the TikTok sea-shanty craze ShantyTok—claims this week’s highest new entry with a remix of “Wellerman” f/220 Kid & Billen Ted (Polydor).

Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” (Polydor) remains at #1 for a third week on 86k chart sales, including 10.3m streams, while The Kid LAROI’s “Without You” (RCA) is up three places to #2.
