Gorrilaz, Paramore and Depeche Mode all feature in the top 10 albums.
Lana Del Rey’s Did you know that there’s a tunnel under Ocean Blvd is the best-selling vinyl release of the year so far in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.
Del Rey’s ninth studio album has sold 20,800 vinyl copies this year, while first-week sales were her strongest since Ultraviolence back in 2014.
Behind Del Rey, Gorillaz’s Cracker Island take second place and St. Jude by The Courteeners is in third.
