The Courteeners are on course to achieve their first Official UK Number One album this Sunday, with their album 'Anna' currently outselling the competition.

Should 'Anna' stay at the top until Sunday, the Manchester band will replace Biffy Clyro's 'Opposites' at the top of the Official UK Album Chart. The album follows the success of their two previous Top 10 albums, 2008’s St. Jude and 2010’s Falcon. Lead singer Liam Fray makes no secret about his desire for chart success with the new record, telling NME this week “I never started this band to be a member of the 'alternative' crowd. I want people to hear our music. You don't make a living limping into the charts at Number 89."

In addition to The Courteeners’ 'Anna', there are ten other new entries on today’s Official Albums Chart Update. Frightened Rabbit are on track to reach their career high with 'Pedestrian Verse' going in at Seven. Meanwhile, Eels are set for their 11th UK Top 40 album with 'Wonderful Glorious' ( 9), and Dagenham MC Devlin debuts at Number 10 today with his second album, 'A Moving Picture'.

Meanwhile, in the Official Singles Chart Disclosure are battling against US star Macklemore for the number one slot. The UK producers collaboration with AlunaGeorge, 'White Noise', is currently trailing the rapper's 'Thrift Store' hit. The surprise return of Fall Out Boy was also clearly a welcome one with their song 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark' charting at Number Five on the Update.
