James Bay also made a strong return to the charts this week as his new album Leap takes the fourth spot.

The singer’s first full-length release in four years also topped the Official Vinyl Albums Chart this week.

Meanwhile Paolo Nutini’s Last Night In The Bittersweet falls off the top spot from last week and drops to number five.

In the singles chart, LF System continue their success as their song Afraid To Feel secures a second week at number one.

The Scottish DJ duo, comprising Conor Larkman and Sean Finnegan, sample soul group Silk’s 1975 track I Can’t Stop (Turning You On) on the track.

Styles also holds on to the number two spot with his hit single As It Was while George Ezra’s Green Green Grass climbs two spots to number three.
