Much-loved singer and actor Joe McElderry has scored a Top 10 spot in the Official UK Album Chart with his new album Saturday Night At The Movies. His first release in over 3 years, Joe is the only winner of The X Factor to have released five Top 20 studio albums, making him the most successful male winner of the show on the official album chart.
Joe’s entry into the charts at No.10 is his highest new entry in five years since the release of ‘Here’s What I Believe’ in 2012.
“I am so happy for the continued support from my fans and cannot thank them enough! This new album is a snapshot of where I am now, it’s a lot of fun and it’s so exciting to be able to share some of my favourite music with the nation!” say Joe.
‘Saturday Night At The Movies’ is inspired by Joe’s love for film and theatre and features newly orchestrated recordings of hits such as ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ from Elvis Presley’s Blue Hawaii, ‘Time Of My Life’ from Dirty Dancing and the inevitable ‘Any Dream Will Do’ from Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, in which Joe is currently starring. The album will also include a bonus track of the hit single ‘Gloria’, written by acclaimed songwriter and 10CC front man, Graham Goudman.
To celebrate the release of his fifth studio album, Joe is currently on a nationwide live tour performing songs from the new album.
