Haim have topped this week's Official Record Store Chart with their debut album 'Days Are Gone'.

The Official Record Store Chart reflects sales in the UK's independent record shops. It was launched as part of last year's Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record shops. The chart is compiled of sales of albums from around 100 independent record retailers who participate in Record Store Day UK. From this week, latest news about the chart will be announced on NME.COM and OfficialCharts.com each Tuesday – with the full Top 40 featuring every week in the new-look NME.

NME editor Mike Williams says, "NME is a huge supporter of independent record stores and Record Store Day, and we’re delighted to incorporate the Official Record Store Chart into the new look NME, which launches this week. The Record Store Chart shines a light on the amazing work done by independent records stores up and down the UK, and celebrates the independent ethos that drives so much of the brilliant music being made in 2013, which is something NME believes in 100 per cent. The fact that it’s compiled just like NME’s original chart which launched in 1952 is an added bonus."

Haim, who are also currently Number One on the Official Albums Chart, beat Arctic Monkeys, who are at Number Two with their fifth album 'AM'. Johnny Flynn is the highest new entry, at Number Three with his second LP 'Country Mile'. Kids in Glass Houses are new in at Number Four with their album 'Peace', while Yuck are at Number Five with their second album 'Glow & Behold'.
