Rolling Stones not so Blue as band tops album chart

By Lucy Mapstone, PA

The Rolling Stones have scored their first number one album with a new record in over 20 years, just one day after the group's frontman Sir Mick Jagger became a father for the eighth time at the age of 73.

The band's first studio record in over a decade, Blue & Lonesome, had 106,000 combined sales in its first week, swiftly knocking last week's chart toppers Little Mix off the top spot.

The Rolling Stones said: "We are absolutely delighted with the success of Blue & Lonesome in the UK and around the world."

This new feat means Blue & Lonesome - certified gold by the BPI - is the group's 12th number one album in the UK, the Official Charts Company said.
