+ and x top the Irish Albums Chart for third week in a row.
This has to be unprecedented right?
Ed Fever following Sheeran's Croker gigs shows no signs of abating, as the flame-haired star scores another unbeatable brace.
For the third week in a row, his X is No. 1 on the Irish Albums Chart and his debut + is at No. 2.
Just below, his mate Taylor Swift sees her Red leap from No. 12 to third position. Her latest LP 1989 (which Ryan Adams just announced he is covering in full, much to Taylor's excitement) is at No. 6.
Hozier is climbing too, his debut up two spots to No. 4, while UB40 (who play the Belfast Feile this Sunday) see their Ultimate Collection round off the Top 5.
The highest new entry is Lianne La Havas – her Blood enters at No. 24. One spot below is another new entry as The Maccabees' Marks To Prove It enter the chart. Check out the current issue of Hot Press for an interview with Felix White from the band. Having launched their album in style in Opium Rooms last week, Na Fianna's Unearthed lands at No. 29.
