The boyband's 'Midnight Memories' fends off competition from Robbie Williams' 'Swings Both Ways'
The album beat off competition from Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams to land the top spot. 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.
Elsewhere in the Top 10 Eminem's 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' is at nine, while former Number One Arctic Monkeys' 'AM' lands at six. The three new entries in this week's chart come from Gary Barlow (3), A Day To Remember (5) and Olly Murs (7).
The chart is made up of sales of albums from around 100 independent record retailers who participate in Record Store Day UK. The full Top 40 features every week in the new-look NME.
