Singer Alex Turner has secured his seventh consecutive number one album with The Last Shadow Puppets' Everything You've Come To Expect.

It is the second time the band have debuted at the top of the album chart. Turner's five albums with Arctic Monkeys also all debuted at number one.

New releases accounted for four of the top five albums, with Pet Shop Boys's Super going in at number three and Black Stone Cherry's Kentucky reaching number five.

Between them was Adele's 25, which has spent 19 weeks in the top five, while classical singer and TV presenter Aled Jones just missed out on the top five, reaching number six with One Voice, his first top 10 album in 31 years

Further down the list, all-female Japanese rock trio Babymetal charted at 15 with Metal Resistance, the highest ever position for a Japanese band.
