Stephen Sanchez performed at Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis on Sunday, February 26, 2023. He's holding up five fingers ... perhaps a prediction of this week's chart?

For the past five weeks, The Heavy Heavy have comfortably held the top spot on The Current Chart Show, but this week they had competition from Janelle Monáe fans and just barely hung on to their No. 1 position. There was a big jump from 14 to No. 7 for Depeche Mode and their new song, “Ghosts Again.” This week Caroline Polachek’s dramatic “Sunset” goes down into the Chart Show Hall of Fame, and we welcome new sounds from Noel Gallagher, from Beck, and from Stephen Sanchez, who debuts at No. 5 with his latest, “Evangeline.”

Vote for your favorite tracks this week and set an appointment to listen with us to The Chart Show every Wednesday at 8 p.m. Central Time on The Current.
