The season of Noah Kahan! Vermont singer-songwriter celebrates the Official Chart Double

Noah secures the Official Chart Double with Stick Season releases
Noah Kahan

Vermont singer-songwriter Noah Kahan claims the Official Chart Double, reigning over the UK Official Albums and Singles Charts simultaneously. 

As he brings his arena tour to the UK, Kahan lifts one spot overtaking midweek leader Declan McKenna to secure his first-ever Number 1 album with Stick Season. Bolstered later in the week by a series of in-store signings at Banquet Records, Kingston, Stick Season also tops the Official Vinyl Albums Chart and enters at Number 2 on the Official Record Store Chart. The record also benefits from the release of deluxe edition Stick Season (Forever). 

Prior to reaching Number 1, Stick Season spent a total of 10 weeks in the UK Official Albums Chart Top 10. Meanwhile, the album’s seemingly unstoppable title track Stick Season clinches a seventh consecutive week at the Official Singles Chart summit. 

The last artist to manage the coveted Official Chart Double was Taylor Swift, who gained her 11th Number 1 album with 1989 (Taylor’s Version) and third UK Number 1 single with Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version) in November 2023.

Official Chart round-up 


Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign clinch the most-streamed album of the past seven days with their first collaborative collection VULTURES 1 (2), reaching the Top 5 with a physical release yet to come. 

VULTURES 1 earns Californian rapper Ty Dolla $ign, born Tyrone William Griffin Jr., a career-best, becoming his first-ever UK Top 40 LP. 

Midweek leader Declan McKenna may have been pipped at the finish line, but the London-born singer-songwriter clinches the UK’s best-selling album of the week, securing third place with What Happened to the Beach? (3), his second Top 5 album in a row following the success of 2020’s Zeros (2). What Happened to the Beach? tops this week’s Official Record Store Chart, the most-purchased LP of the past seven days in the UK’s independent record shops, and debuts at Number 2 on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart. 

Meanwhile, VENUS earns Swedish singer-songwriter Zara Larsson her third UK Top 20 album (15), joining 2017 release So Good (7) and 2021 collection Poster Girl (11).  

Seeing uplift thanks to the recent release of his Bob Marley: One Love biopic, Bob Marley & The Wailers’ Legend compilation returns to the Top 20, rising seven places (18). The record has now spent an incredible 1121 weeks on the Official Albums Chart; 12 of those at Number 1 non-consecutively. 

Following his career-spanning Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show performance last weekend, which saw him joined by the likes of Alicia Keys and Lil Jon, USHER celebrates his eighth UK Top 40 album with COMING HOME (24), and finally, Dizzee Rascal earns an eighth Top 40 LP with eighth studio album Don’t Take It Personal (27).

While Noah Kahan holds tight at the Official Singles Chart summit with Stick Season, this week sees several competitors ramp up their efforts to knock him off the top spot. 

Breakout Washington singer-songwriter Benson Boone’s Beautiful Things continues its ascent, climbing two to a new Number 3 peak, sitting less than 600 chart units behind Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Murder On The Dancefloor at Number 2. 

YG Marley breaks into the Top 5 for the first time, with Praise Jah in the Moonlight up four to Number 5.

Further down the Top 10, Beyoncé kickstarts the RENAISSANCE Act II era in style. Brand-new single TEXAS HOLD ‘EM is this week’s highest new entry at Number 9, and becomes the superstar’s 22nd UK Top 10 single.

Following the release of VULTURES 1, Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign sink three entries in the Top 20 today; Carnival (12), Burn (17) and Back To Me (18). 

Ella Henderson & Rudimental’s Gangsta’s Paradise-sampling Alibi reaches another new peak (15), as does Whatever by Kygo and Ava Max (24). 

Noah Kahan’s Forever (31), from the new edition of his Stick Season album, becomes his fifth Top 40 single to date, while indie-rock duo Good Neighbours’ debut single Home continues to reach new ground (34), up six week-on-week. 

Wes Nelson and Craig David debut at Number 37 with brand-new collaboration Abracadabra, following the duo’s live performance on Love Island All Stars. It becomes Wes’s fourth UK Top 40 single (and first in three years) and Craig’s 26th.     

And finally, following her first live performance in years at last week’s GRAMMY Awards, Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car re-enters the Top 40 (38). Originally released in 1988, and reaching a peak of Number 4 in 2011, Fast Car was recently covered by US country singer Luke Combs. His cover peaked at Number 30 last year, and he performed the track live with Chapman at the GRAMMYs.

declan was robbed. i’m not mad that noah overtook it because i like him. i’m mad because that anti semitic piece of sh*t also leapfrogged over him. while he was boiling up in his bigotry he fell off in the process. i literally only go back to one song from vultures 1. justice for declan.




Well done to Noah on the chart double. Very happy that Beyoncé made it into the Top 10 despite her new singles only being released early on Monday morning! 😊
