The 1975 are set to claim a much-deserved No.1 album this week, as their self-titled debut has topped the UK midweek charts.

The Manchester band follow the singles success of hits 'Chocolate', 'The City' and 'Sex' with a massive new entry on the album charts, knocking American rockers Avenged Sevenfold from the top spot. The band have outsold Nine Inch Nails to take the midweek top spot, as they enter at No.2 with their new release, Hesitation Marks. Rizzle Kicks enter at No.3 with their second album, Roaring 20s. Naughty Boy's debut Hotel Cabana sits at No.4 and Richard & Adam spend another week inside the UK Top 5 with their covers collection, The Impossible Dream.

US star Ariana Grande enters at No.6 on the album chart with Yours Truly, while Babyshambles are also set for a Top 10 entry with their new release, Sequel To The Prequel, which enters at No.8. John Legend enters at No.23 with his album, Love In The Future, Glasvegas enter at No.28 with Later... When The TV Turns To Statis and This Savage Land by Black Spiders is new at No.33.

Katy Perry takes an easy victory on the singles chart, as 'Roar' dethrones Ellie Gouling after a three-week run at No.1 with her single, 'Burn'. Perry has sold nearly 103,000 copies of the first release from her third studio album, and is on track to score the fastest selling single of 2013. The record is currently held by Avicii with his own chart topper, 'Wake Me Up', which sold over 266,000 copies in its week of release in July.

Ellie Goulding slips to No.2 on the midweek chart, Avicii sits at No.3, Klangkarussell’s Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine) is at No.4 and Lana Del Rey remains at No.5 with the Cedric Gervais remix of 'Summertime Sadness'.

New girlband Neon Jungle are at No.10 in the midweeks with debut single 'Trouble', You Me At Six enter at No.11 with 'Lived A Lie' and London Grammar enter at No.17 with 'Strong'.

The X Factor begins its impact on the chart early this year, with a number of songs performed on last weekend's auditions show entering the Top 40.
