Daft Punk look set to hold onto the Number 1 spot on the Official Albums Chart for a second week in a row.
The French duo shot to the top of the chart on Sunday with their fourth album, Random Access Memories. It became the fastest selling album of 2013 so far, shifting a staggering 165,000 copies during its first week on sale, beating the previous record of 121,000 set by Michael Buble’s To Be Loved back in April.
Rod Stewart’s Time is holding firm at Number 2 on today’s Official Albums Chart Update, while folk singer/songwriter Laura Marling claims this week’s highest new entry with Once I Was An Eagle (3). It could become her highest charting album to date, as 2010’s I Speak Because I Can and 2011’s A Creature I Don’t Know both peaked at Number 4 on the Official Albums Chart.
This week’s Top 5 is completed by London-based girl group Stooshe’s debut album, London With The Lights On (5). The album features their Top 20 singles Love Me FT Gym Class Heroes, Black Heart and Slip.
Black Star Riders, who are made up of former members of Thin Lizzy and The Almighty, look set to make their Official Albums Chart debut this weekend. The group’s first studio album, All Hell Breaks Loose (11), is new in on today’s Official Chart Update, meanwhile, veteran grunge stars Alice In Chains are on course for their fifth UK Top 40 album with The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here (12).
This week’s new entries are completed by deluxe re-issues of Wings’ 1976 live album, Wings Over America (22), and Hawkwind’s 1975 fifth studio album, Warrior On The Edge Of Time (37).
