Music Charts: Mumford & Sons return to number 1 after Glastonbury set

Mumford & Sons have climbed back to the top of the UK albums chart this week, following their Glastonbury appearance last weekend. 

The band headlined the last day of the prestigious festival, which also played host to headline sets from Arctic Monkeys and The Rolling Stones. Their sophomore album 'Babel' is now no.1 in the Official UK Albums Chart for the second time since its release last September. 

The album's sales increased 384% in the two days following the festival, but the band only managed to beat Michael Buble's 'To Be Loved', which currently sits at no.2, by 125 copies, according to the Official Charts Company. Jake Bugg, Tom Odell and Rod Stewart complete the top 5. 

Elsewhere in the albums chart, we see Editors enter at no.6 with their fourth album 'The Weight of Your Love'. 

The Official UK Singles Chart sees John Newman enter at no.1 with his debut solo single 'Love Me Again', knocking Icona Pop's 'I Love It' to no.3, whilst Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' 'Blurred Lines' holds its position at no.2

Will.I.Am's 'Bang Bang' and 'La La La' by Naughty Boy complete the top 5, whilst 'Lighters (The One)' by Britain's Got Talent contestant 'Gabz' enters at no.6.
