Rod Stewart has scored his first UK number one album for 34 years, going straight to the top with his LP, Time.
Time is Stewart's first album of new material for two decades and was inspired by the process of writing his recent autobiography.
It entered the chart ahead of singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin's debut album English Rain, which is a new entry at number two.
Vampire Weekend's third album Modern Vampires of the City is in third place.
Last week's number one, The Shocking Miss Emerald by Caro Emerald, drops to number four.
Other new entries include A, the first new album in nine years from former Abba star Agnetha Faltskog, which has landed at number six.
Rod Stewart was last at the top of the UK album chart with his Greatest Hits Vol 1 in 1979.
On the singles chart, French electro stars Daft Punk have stayed at number one for a fourth week with their comeback single Get Lucky, which has now sold 606,000 copies in the UK.
Passenger, the alter-ego of Brighton singer/songwriter Mike Rosenberg, has climbed for the seventh week in a row to reach second place with Let Her Go.
US starlet Demi Lovato is at three with Heart Attack, her biggest UK hit to date, according to the Official Charts Company.
