The Who debut new album in UK Top 5

The Who have debuted their self-titled album in the UK Top 5.

According to the Official Charts Company, the band’s first studio set of new material in thirteen years, “Who” was the chart’s highest new entry at No. 3 behind Rod Stewart’s “You're In My Heart” at No. 1 and Robbie Williams“The Christmas Present” in second place.

The three acts battled for top spot throughout the week, with The Who looking to score their first UK No. 1 on almost 50 years; their first and only other UK chart-topper was 1971’s “Who’s Next.”

“Who” also earns the distinction of being the band’s highest-charting UK album in 38 years, since 1981’s “Face Dances” reached No. 2.

The Who were recently honored as the first inductees into The Music Walk Of Fame in London; Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey were on hand for the November 19 event as organizers unveiled a paving stone in recognition of their career, with plans to award a further 20 stones in the coming year.
