The Cribs, Laura Marling and Courtney Barnett are among the big winners in this week’s UK album charts, with the Wakefield trio making ‘For All My Sisters’ their third Top 10 record.
The band enter at #9 with the record, their sixth, meaning this, posted during their takeover of our Instagram back on Monday, is to be a reality.

Over in the Singles chart, Jess Glynne scores a solo #1 with ‘Hold My Hand’, while Rihanna’s return, ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ is at #29 after just two days on sale.
