David Bowie's 'The Next Day' tops 2013 Official Record Store Chart
David Bowie's 'The Next Day' has topped the Official Record Store Chart's list of Best Selling Albums of 2013.

The album beat competition from Arctic Monkeys and Daft Punk to land the top spot. Elsewhere in the Top 10, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are at Four with their album 'Push The Sky Away', while Queens of the Stone Age's '... Like Clockwork' lands at Five. Other entries in the Top 10 come from The National, Jake Bugg, Mumford and Sons, Boards of Canada and Vampire Weekend.
