Pink Floyd have stolen the top spot with new album The Endless River, becoming the top selling album of 2014 in the process.
The album has shot the previous holders of the sales accolade, Coldplay's Ghost Stories and Ed Sheeran's X, with a whopping 139,000 sales since last weeks release. Not too bad for a band who haven't released a record in 20 years...
“Pink Floyd is both thrilled and surprised at the level of international interest in this their final album," a spokesperson told The Official Charts Company. "They want to thank the fans for their support and hope that in some small way, The Endless River has reminded them of the old fashioned joy of listening to an album in its entirety.”
It also means that the album has surpassed the Foo Fighters' eighth offering, titled Sonic Highways, which lands at No.2. Ed Sheeran's X is still hanging on at No.3, while Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour has moved back up to No.4. Lastly veteran rockers Queen have returned at No.5 with a compilation of unreleased and remastered material, entitled Queen Forever.
As for the singles charts, Gareth Malone's All Star Choir is at No.1 with 'Wake Me Up', just knocking Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud' down to No.2. Meanwhile One Direction's 'Steal My Girl' moves to No.3, Cheryl Coles 'I Don't Care' is at No.4 and 'All About That Bass' by Meghan Trainor is still hanging on at No.5.
