Emeli Sande has reclaimed the Official UK Number One Album spot following this week's Brit Awards success.

'Our Version Of Events', which won the Mastercard Album Of The Year last Wednesday (February 20), has returned to the top of the Official UK Album Chart for the ninth, non-consecutive week since its release a year ago, reports the Official Charts Company.

Sande ends 'Les Misérables – The Motion Picture Cast Recording''s dominance at the top of the Official album chart, as the soundtrack to the Hollywood musical drops four places to Number Five. Mumford and Sons are at Number Two with 'Babel'.

Meanwhile, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds record their highest ever chart placing as 'Push The Sky Away' debuts in at Number Three. Their previous best was with 2008's 'Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!', which peaked at Number Four. Ben Howard completes the Top 5 with his album 'Every Kingdom' jumping a whopping 42 places to Number Four.

Elsewhere, Alt-J are back in the Top 20 with their Mercury-winning debut album 'An Awesome Wave', Frank Ocean's 'Channel Orange' is back in the chart at Number 19 and Muse's 'The 2nd Law' is at Number 23, up 33 places.

In the Official UK Singles Chart, One Direction land their third Official UK Number One, as their Comic Relief single, 'One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)', becomes the fastest selling track of the year so far.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' 'Thrift Shop' is a non-mover at Number Two, Baauer's 'Harlem Shake' is at Number Three and Justin Timberlake's 'Mirrors' is at Number Four. Avicii Vs Nicky Romero complete this week's Top Five with 'I Could Be The One'.
