Royal Blood are also at number one on the UK’s main chart rundown.
It’s a Top 20 dominated by new entries, more coming from the likes of Teenage Fanclub, Girl In Red, Pink Floyd, Gojira and Manchester Orchestra, but Waxahatchee does find room to climb from last week with her stand-out 2020 album Saint Cloud.
It’s now nine years since The Official Charts Company launched this chart as vinyl sales surged during the last decade, a trend which continued in 2020 as the format grew for the 13th consecutive year. It is compiled from the best selling albums at 100 of Britain’s leading independent music shops.
