The Verve played at V Festival earlier this month
Reunited rock band The Verve have shot straight to the top of the album charts with their first release in more than ten years.
Their album, Forth, was recorded when the band reformed last year following a split at the height of their success.
It knocked Irish three-piece The Script off the number one spot, The Official Charts Company said.
US singer Katy Perry held on to her number one singles spot for the fourth week with I Kissed A Girl.
Eric Prydz was the highest new entry in the singles chart with Pjanoo, pushing The Script down two places to number four with their song, The Man Who Can't Be Moved.
Rihanna moved up one place to number three with Disturbia, while last week's new entry, Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro, rose five places to number five with their single Mountains.
Despite their success in the album chart, The Verve's single, Love Is Noise, fell two places from seven to nine.
As well as The Verve, this week's album chart saw more new entries into the top 10.
Slipknot went straight in at number two with their album All Hope Is Gone, while Eva Cassidy's Somewhere enters at number four.
Michael Jackson marked turning 50 with a new entry at number five for King Of Pop.
