Tom Odell's debut album 'Long Way Down' has knocked Kanye West's 'Yeezus' off the Official UK Album Chart top spot.

The album, which was awarded 0/10 by NME, has entered the Official UK Album chart at Number One, outselling the Number Two album, Rod Stewart's 'Time', by more than two copies to one, according to the Official Charts Company.

Passenger, aka Mike Rosenberg, climbs two places to Number Three with 'All The Little Lights', Michael Buble is up 10 places to Number Four with 'To Be Loved', while Jake Bugg's self-titled debut re-enters the Top 10 at Number Five. Last week's chart-topper, Kanye West's 'Yeezus', is down five places to Number Six.

Elsewhere, Australian duo Empire Of The Sun score their second UK Top 40 as their new album 'Ice On The Dune' enters in at Number 23. Meanwhile, Friday night Glastonbury headliners the Arctic Monkeys are this week's highest climbers. Their debut album 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not' has soared a massive 148 places to Number 32 in the chart.

In the Official UK Singles Chart, Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' has been toppled from the Number One spot. The hit track has been top for four weeks, but today it has finally been knocked down to Number Two by Icona Pop's 'I Love It'.

The track, featuring Charli XCX, is currently used in the TV advertising campaign for Samsung's new Galaxy S4 smartphone, and has sold a staggering 125,000 copies in the past seven days. This is the 11th week a Number One track has sold in excess of 100,000 copies; the last time the chart saw such a run was from January to April 1998 when the Number One single sold over 100,000 for 13 consecutive weeks.

Will.i.am is at Number Three with 'Bang Bang', which he performed last weeknd on BBC's The Voice, while The Wanted's 'Walks Like Rihanna' is at Number Four. Naughty Boy and Sam Smith's 'La La La' completes this week's Top 5.
