The re-issue of Older has re-entered the Official UK Albums Chart at number 2 – having missed out on the number 1 position by a mere 340 copies.

However it was number 1 on three of the sales charts:
#1 Official UK Albums Sales Chart
#1 Official UK Physical Albums Chart
#1 Official UK Vinyl Album Chart
It lost out on the overall sales chart as it was streamed less than the number 1 album.
