Lady Gaga's first single in three years has missed the top 10 in the singles chart, debuting at number 12.

Perfect Illusion is the lead single from the singer's forthcoming album Joanne, which is released next month.

The top four singles this week remained unchanged, with Closer by Chainsmokers holding the number one spot.

In contrast, the top four albums this week are all new entries - with Bastille's Wild World debuting at number one.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds were placed second with Skeleton Tree, while Live at the Hollywood Bowl by The Beatles debuted at number three.

The Fab Four's album was released to coincide with the new documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week.
