SPACE MAN Sam Ryder has rocketed straight to the top of the U.K. album charts with his debut effort There’s Nothing But Space, Man.
According to Official Albums Charts, he’s the first British male solo artist to debut as a Number 1 in over three years. Sam Fender did so back in 2019 with his debut LP “Hypersonic Missiles”.
In a video posted on Official Charts YouTube channel, Sam expresses his happiness for winning the Number 1 trophy and he expresses his gratitude for everyone who helped him to achieve this and who helped him to create his debut album. He says:
“It looks like Christmas came early, because we achieved a Number 1 record together. Thank you all so much. If you knew the amount of people who’ve worked so hard on this, it’d blow your mind. This is pure collaboration. It couldn’t have been done without so many fabulous, amazing, optimistic legends. I love you, peace.”
Sam Ryder: Debut album hits Number 1 on UK charts
There’s Nothing But Space, Man showcases Sam’s musical diversity, skipping through genres from dance-pop to pop rock and even electro-pop. The album contains 14 tracks including some previously released singles like “SPACE MAN”, “Somebody” and “All the Way Over”.
Love, breakups, anxiety and the pain and joy of daily life — Sam’s chosen themes take us on rollercoaster of emotions. Songs like “Somebody” bring the smiles, while “Deep Blue Doubt” and “Tiny Riot” serve empowerment. “All The Way Over” made me weep. The album includes the well-received collab with David Guetta and Sigala — “Living Without You”.
The Deluxe edition of the album has 21 tracks, including acoustic versions of some of his best-known songs and some live performances too.

It’s the latest in a series of achievements for the Eurovision 2022 runner-up.
This year Sam Ryder had a series of huge achievements, as his participation in Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June at Buckingham Palace, Summertime Ball at Wembley Stadium and his participation in Taylor Hawkins’ Tribute Concert together with Brian May and Roger Taylor, two of the original members of iconic British band Queen. He also released a series of singles during this year and he wrapped up this year with the release of his debut album “There’s Nothing But Space, Man”, on 9th of December 2022. Of course, the title of the album might sound very familiar to any Eurovision fan, as it is a line from his Eurovision song “SPACE MAN”.
