Newly released album tracks “Perfect” (#4), “New Man” (#5), and “Happier” (#6) directly follow, while “Dive” (#8), “Supermarket Flowers” (#9), and “What Do I Know” (#10) also hold Top 10 positions.

Previously released song “How Would You Feel (Paean)” holds at #11.

“Barcelona” (#12), “Nancy Mulligan” (#13), “Eraser” (#14), “Hearts Don’t Break Around Here” (#15), “Bibia Be Ye Ye” (#18) and “Save Myself” (#19) also debut.
