Queens of the Stone Age have debuted at number 1 in Britain with their seventh studio album, Villains.

It is their first number 1 album in Britain and their fifth straight top ten. 2013’s …Like Clockwork was their previous best, going to number 2.

Glen Campbell’s Adios moves 9 to 8 in its twelfth week of release. The album re-surged to a new peak of number 2 three weeks ago following Campbell’s death.

The Queens of the Stone Age have the only album debut for a veteran artist on this week’s chart.

The top five:

Villains – Queens of the Stone Age
Divide – Ed Sheeran
A Deeper Understanding – The War on Drugs
All We Know of Heaven, All We Need is Hell – PVRIS
Love Always – Shane Filan

On the Singles side, Taylor Swift has managed her first British number 1 record with Look What You Made Me Do. It’s followed by New Rules by Dua Lipa, What About Us by P!nk, Feels by Calvin Harris, Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean, and Friends by Justin Bieber and Bloodpop.
