Vampire Weekend are back at the top of the U.S. album charts after debuting their new album Modern Vampires Of The City at number one.

The XL Recordings release becomes the first independently-distributed album to reach number in 2013 and beats country legend George Strait to the top by 14,000 sales. Strait records his 18th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 with Love Is Everything at number two.

Only Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley Bob Dylan have more top 10 albums.

Love Is Everything tops the new U.S. Country Albums chart extending Strait's number one streak to 25 - 10 more than Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.

Meanwhile, Demi Lovato makes it a one-two-three week of debuts on the Billboard 200 countdown by entering the chart at three with Demi, while The Great Gatsby soundtrack falls to four and last week's number one - Lady Antebellum's Golden - rounds out the new top five at five.
