We’re back with our weekly Stadium Music Chart, representing the most popular new releases playing out across the nation’s Football Grounds and Sport Stadiums, compiled using official Shoot Music DJ download data. The first couple of weeks of the football season have seen our chart grow consistently in terms of fan engagement & DJ downloads. Now as we approach the first international break, DJs from international clubs are getting involved and contributing to the exposure of some absolutely superb tracks. As usual, keep your eyes peeled for newcomers!
Just one of last weeks’ top 4 remain present in the Champions League spots this time round, and that’s Elton John & Dua Lipa with ‘Cold Heart’ (remixed by PNAU) sitting strong at the top. Rounding off the four we have Stockport legends & Manchester City fanatics, Blossoms. The lads have made a huge jump from 10th all the way to 4th with ‘Care For‘, similar to City’s rise from mid-table side in the early 2000s to champions in the present!
Frontman, Tom Ogden has said they were aiming to create the “ultimate end of the evening, wedding disco dance tune” when writing ‘Care For’…mission accomplished. The track is a result of Tom spending weeks & months in lockdown listening to a concoction of The Style Council, Diana Ross, John & Yoko’s Double Fantasy & Billy Ocean.

Alongside The Sherlocks who continue to advance up the table with their brand new single ‘City Skies’, we have a new entree in the form of two brothers who are actually no strangers to the Shoot Music Stadium Chart. Disclosure are back with a bang, claiming 13th with ‘Another Level’, taken from their 5-track EP, ‘Never Enough’ that came out just last week. The EP has been a huge hit after the lads released a track a day for a week, keeping fans glued to the boys’ social media sites for links & updates. On the release of this new music, Guy explains: “The spark that ignited the creation of this body of work came from a place of wanting to revitalise a very fractured & uncertain dance music scene, and club culture that has changed so much all over the world for obvious reasons in the last 18 months.
As we approach the first international break of the season, it’s also worth noting that on top of attracting downloads from huge clubs in Scotland & England, Guy & Howard are leading the way with the highest DJ downloads from international sides too. Arguably the pick of bunch being Simon Bayne (DJ) & the German National Team, meaning ‘Another Level’ is set for airplay during Germany’s World Cup Qualifiers against Armenia, Iceland & Liechtenstein. Exciting stuff!
Best Of The Rest
The latter places in our table see another artist claim two spots within the same week. Jack Savoretti now features for a second time with his single ‘Secret Life‘ taken from his critically-acclaimed 2021 album, ‘Europiana‘. This record also features 2nd place ‘Who’s Hurting Who‘, which has been a chart regular for the past 7 weeks. Let’s face it, that’s what you expect when an artist collaborates with the legendary, Nile Rodgers!
While discussing the single, Jack stated: “Everybody has three lives… your personal, your professional and your secret life! This is a song about my secret life.”
