Kasabian score third consecutive UK Number One album with 'Velociraptor!' Kasabian Tickets

Leicester lads's fourth album knocks Ed Sheeran off the top spot

Video: Kasabian - 'Velociraptor!' Is Our Best Album Yet

Kasabian's fourth album 'Velociraptor!' has gone straight in at Number One on the Official UK Albums Chart.

The Leicester band knocked Suffolk singer songwriter Ed Sheeran and his debut '+' off the top spot after just one week.

'Velociraptor!' is Serge Pizzorno and co's third consecutive Number One album, following on from 2006's 'Empire' and 2009's 'West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum'.

Adele's '21' clings on in the top three, as does Joe McElderry's opera-lite 'Classic', while Tony Bennett's 'Duets II' album, which features Amy Winehouse's final recording, is a new entry at Number Five.

There's a new Number One in the singles chart too, with N-Dubz frontman Dappy in at the top with 'No Regrets', the title track to his forthcoming album.

The 24-year-old rapper, whose real name is Castadinos Contostavlos, knocked X Factor boy band One Direction off the top spot with his first solo single.

Jason Derulo and James Morrison also have new entries in this week's Top 10, debuting at Four and Five respectively.

Dappy told Radio 1's Newsbeat: "I've been waiting for this moment all my life."

He added:

I want it to be one of the best records that comes out this year.



Elsewhere in the singles chart, Irish singer Damien Rice sees his 2002 track 'Cannonball' reach Number Nine. The ballad has re-entered the chart after being covered on X Factor by Welsh maths teacher John Adams.
