LONDON: Rod Stewart has scored his first UK number one album for 34 years, going straight to the top with his LP, Time. Time is Stewart’s first album of new material for two decades and was inspired by the process of writing his recent autobiography. It entered the chart ahead of singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin’s debut album English Rain, which is a new entry at number two. Vampire Weekend’s third album Modern Vampires of the City is in third place. Last week’s number one, The Shocking Miss Emerald by Caro Emerald, drops to number four.–LP
