Blossoms score debut Number 1 album: "We're absolutely made up"

Plus Giggs, Wild Beasts and Moose Blood are new Top 10 entries.

Stockport five-piece Blossoms have gone straight in at Number 1 with their debut album.

Garnering airplay and Record of the Week status on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and 6 Music has helped the band steamroll the competition. Tom, Charlie, Josh, Joe and Myles finished 9,500 copies ahead of their nearest rival to take their self-titled album to the top spot.

Speaking to, the band said: "We're absolutely made up that the album has gone to Number 1. From the scaffolding yard to the top of the charts, who'd have thought it? Viva Stockport!"

This week's runner-up is British rapper Giggs. His fourth studio album Landlord is 19 places higher than his previous Official Albums Chart best, 2013's When Will It Stop which reached Number 21. The rest of the Top 5 is made up of Drake's Views which is up one place to 3, ELO's All Over The World - The Very Best Of at 4, and last week's self-titled Number 1 from the late Viola Beach (5).
