Disclosure have hit the top of the UK Album Charts in the first week of release of their debut LP, Settle after a close-run battle with Queens Of The Stone Age.

The brotherly duo of Guy and Howard Lawrence pipped Josh Homme’s outfit to the #1 spot by around 7,000 copies, closing the week on just shy of 45,000 sales, and in the process heralding a changing of the guard by ending Daft Punk’s three week reign at the top of the charts.

The duo also demonstrated their international appeal, with strong sales around the world landing them in the US iTunes Top 5, and the national Top 5 in Australia.

The feat caps a phenomenal 2013 so far for the pair, who had already bagged two Top 10 singles with White Noise and You & Me, and have been busy playing live to packed-out audiences around the world.

The pair said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the result. Proudest moment of our lives. We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has bought the record.”
