Arctic Monkeys top UK album charts with "Humbug"
LONDON (Reuters) - The Arctic Monkeys scored their third successive No. 1 album on British charts with their latest release "Humbug," the Official Charts Company said.
The album from the Sheffield quartet, who were the headline act at the Leeds and Reading rock festivals over the weekend, outsold the rest of the top five combined.
Also new at No. 2 was "One Love" from French DJ David Guetta.
World War Two forces' sweetheart Vera Lynn entered the album chart at No. 20 with a compilation "We'll Meet Again," becoming at 92 the oldest living artist to have achieved such a feat, her record label Decca said.
In the singles charts, British rapper Dizzee Rascal shot straight to the top spot with "Holiday," his third No. 1.
Scottish rock band Biffy Clyro were also new at number 10 with "That Golden Rule."
