Mumford & Sons’ Babel back on top of U.K. albums chart

Mumford & Sons have returned to the top of the U.K. albums chart following their triumphant performance at Britain’s legendary Glastonbury festival last month (Jun13). The folk rockers brought the three-day event to a close on 30 June (13) in their first live show since bassist Ted Dwane underwent surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain three weeks earlier, and their headlining set propelled their last release Babel back to number one, narrowly beating Michael Buble’s To Be Loved by just 125 units.
It’s the third time the album has reached the top spot since it was released in 2012.
In the U.K. singles chart, another Glastonbury act, soul singer John Newman, debuted Love Me Again in first place, knocking Icona Pop’s hit song I Love It into third. R&B star Robin Thicke held on at number two with Blurred Lines.
