The Rolling Stones have stormed to the top of the U.K. album chart for the first time in 16 years.
The classic rockers’ Exile on Main Street album, which was first issued in 1972, has been remastered and re-released with the addition of several new songs – and it has scored the group its first number one since Voodoo Lounge hit the top spot in 1994.
Dance music supergroup Faithless debut The Dance at two on the new countdown, while Plan B’s The Defamation of Strickland Banks drops to three.
The Baseballs’ Strike debuts at four and Lady Gaga’s The Fame rounds out the new top five.
Meanwhile, in the U.K. singles chart, rapper B.o.B. scores his first U.K. number one with Nothin’ On You, while Jason Derulo’s Ridin’ Solo hangs on to second place.
Last week’s chart-topper, Roll Deep’s Good Times, slips to three.
