Subscribe to Rod Stewart alerts

Veteran rocker Rod Stewart has returned to the top of the U.K. albums chart for the first time in 34 years.

The Maggie May hitmaker's latest release, Time, is his first collection of original material in almost two decades and it's proved to be a big hit with fans after rocketing to number one on Sunday (19May13).

Singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin debuted English Rain at two, while Vampire Weekend was another new entry at three with Modern Vampires of the City.

Stewart will face stiff competition to hold on to number one next week (26May13) - Daft Punk is on course to smash Oasis' 16-year U.K. chart record for the fastest-selling album after drawing huge pre-sale interest with its new album Random Access Memories, which will be officially released on Monday (20May13).

Meanwhile, the French dance duo has continued to dominate the U.K. singles countdown with Get Lucky, notching up a fourth consecutive week in pole position. The track has now shifted a total of 606,000 units, making it the second biggest-selling U.K. single of the year (13) so far, behind MACklemore & Ryan Lewis' Thriftshop.

British singer Passenger's Let Her Go took second place, while Demi Lovato claimed number three with Heart Attack.
