“If I Can Dream,” a set of Elvis classics featuring orchestral reworkings from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
This means Elvis now has more Number 1 albums in the UK than some other male solo artist, and places him level with Madonna in second place for the most chart-topping LPs, behind the Beatles, who have 15, the Official Charts Company said on Friday.
Elvis claimed top place with 79,000 graph sales, it included, giving him the second-fastest selling record of the year behind Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Fowl’ “Chasing Yesterday.”
Rod Stewart acquired his 34th Top 10 record with “Another State,” new at Number 2, while Elbow frontman Guy Garvey was third with his first solo release “Courting The Squall.”
In the singles charts, Adele was top to get a second week with “Hello,” Britain’s fastest-selling record of 2015, keeping Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” down in second spot.
Sam Smith’s James Bond theme “Writing’s On The Wall” climbed back up one place to Number 3.
