Washington, May 24 (ANI): Rolling Stones have topped the UK albums chart with a re-release of their classic LP ‘Exile On Main Street.’

‘Exile On Main Street’ landed in first place for the second time in 38 years, with the re-release of the legendary rock band’s 1972 album pipping Faithless’s respective new entry.

‘The Dance’, the electronica band’s sixth studio album, settled for second place.

A song by Leeds United FC’s 1972 squad, re-released to celebrate the club’s recent promotion, is at number 10, while US rapper B.o.B is at number one on the singles chart with ‘Nothin’ On You’, according to the Official Charts Company.

“It’s quite a result for an album from 1972 to be back at number one. It proves the Stones’s music is as powerful today as when it was created,” the BBC quoted David Joseph, chairman of the Stones’s label Universal Music UK, as saying. (ANI)
