Singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner has hit the top spot in the UK album chart, confirming him as one of this year's hottest new artists.

Faulkner rose to prominence supporting James Morrison and Paolo Nutini.

In the singles chart, Kanye West's Stronger has held onto number one for a second week, holding off a challenge from Sean Kingston's Beautiful Girls.
