Arcade Fire's 'Reflektor' has entered the Official UK Album Chart at Number One.

The Canadian band's fourth studio album has knocked Katy Perry's 'Prism' (2) off the top spot, outselling the US singer's new record by two copies to one over the past seven days, reports the Official Charts Company.

James Blunt is down one spot to Number Three with 'Moon Landing', Lorde's 'Pure Heroine' is new in at Number Four and Arctic Monkeys' 'AM' completes this week's Top 5.

Elsewhere, fresh from winning the Mercury Prize on Wednesday (October 30), James Blake's second album 'Overgrown' has rocketed from outside the Top 200 to finish the week at Number 23 in the Official UK Albums Chart.

Meanwhile, in the Official UK Singles Chart, Eminem and Rihanna have denied One Direction their fourth UK Number One Single with 'The Monster'. The track, taken from Eminem's new album 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', is this week's Number One.

'Royals' by Lorde is at Number Two, the Calvin Harris remix of Fatboy Slim's 'Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat' is at Number Three, One Direction's 'Story Of My Life' is at Number Four and 'Counting Stars' by OneRepublic is at Number Five.

Tinie Tempah narrowly missed out on a Top 5 placing with his latest single, 'Children Of The Sun', entering in at Number Six. The track is taken from the rapper's hotly-anticipated second album, 'Demonstration', which is out tomorrow (November 4).
