Will Young Is Not In The U.K. Top 10 This Week

The U.K. chart is a bit snoozy this week, so here's the cover of Will Young's upcoming fourth album Let It Go, due out late September. Will appears to be taking style tips from George Michael, circa 1996 here.

Elsewhere, Keane's "Spiralling"—the first single off the forthcoming Perfect Symmetry—debuts at #28 based on downloads alone. The track was initially offered free for a week from the band's official site. Four years ago this month, Keane's "Bedshaped" became their third in a string of Top 10 U.K. hits, and the groovy "Spiralling" deserves to restore the trio back to its pre-Tom Chaplin-drug-scandal glory.

Of course, I may be one of only a few who really loved Keane's last album Under The Iron Sea.

But Will Young's last album? Not so much.

The U.K. Top 10:

1. "I Kissed A Girl" - Katy Perry *2 weeks*
2. "All Summer Long" - Kid Rock
3. "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" - The Script
4. "Love Is Noise" - The Verve
5. "Dance Wiv Me" - Dizzee Rascal/Calvin Harris/Chrome
6. "Disturbia" - Rihanna
7. "Beggin'" - Madcon *new*
8. "No Air" - Jordin Sparks Duet With Chris Brown
9. "5 Years Time" - Noah & The Whale
10. "Viva La Vida" - Colplay
