It’s a new week, and with that a new artist at the top spot. Since entering the chart last week, the legendary Liam Gallagher has accumulated a load of new downloads from stadium DJs and is now sitting at the top of our chart. His latest banger ‘Everything’s Electric’ has turned heads at a number of Premier League clubs over the last couple of weeks, including Everton, Leeds United and Crystal Palace.
It was co-written by Dave Grohl (who also performs drums in the track) with its producer, the multiple Grammy Award and Ivor Novello winner Greg Kurstin. Liam and Dave Grohl first met many years ago when Foo Fighters played with Oasis on tour. They maintained a mutual admiration ever since, while speculation about a possible collaboration between the pair rose in recent years.
Also joining Liam in the Champions League spots are Scottish rockers, Franz Ferdinand. They arrive with their superb single ‘Curious’ and a slightly new-look line up since some fans may have last seen them perform.

Toward mid-table you’ll find a second new entry and a real blast from the past. It’s only Red Hot Chili Peppers with their latest offering ‘Black Summer’, and this one is sure to give those old enough a nostalgic hit. On ‘Black Summer‘,ethereal guitar underlines introspective lyrics as the rhythm unlocks a hypnotic drum groove highlighted by evocative bass.
‘Black Summer’ is the first track to be taken from the band’s twelfth full-length studio album, ‘Unlimited Love’, which is set to be unveiled April 1st 2022.
Best Of The Rest
Further down the standings, sandwiched between Johnny Marr and Feeder are indie-rock heroes Bloc Party, another group with a slightly different line-up to the old days, but killing it no less! Their brand new single ‘The Girls Are Fighting’ is the second track to be lifted from their forthcoming sixth studio album ‘Alpha Games‘, due Friday 29 April via Infectious / BMG.
Frontman Kele Okereke says of the track, “I think ‘The Girls Are Fighting’ is kind of self-explanatory – someone’s been selling dreams to someone they shouldn’t have and it’s caught up with them. I just wanted to capture that moment of going from naught to ten in an evening, in a sweaty nightclub. I’m really pleased with the arrangement for this track because it has this 1970s glam rock feel meets Adam Ant feel. I love what Louise is doing on the tom toms.”
