The Rolling Stones have scored their first number one album with a new record in more than 20 years, just one day after the group’s frontman Sir Mick Jagger became a father for the eighth time at the age of 73.

The Rolling Stones have scored their first number one album with a new record in more than 20 years, just one day after the group’s frontman Sir Mick Jagger became a father for the eighth time at the age of 73.

The band’s first studio record in over a decade had 106,000 combined sales in its first week, swiftly knocking last week’s chart toppers Little Mix off the top spot.

The Rolling Stones said: “We are absolutely delighted with the success of Blue & Lonesome in the UK and around the world.”

This new feat means Blue & Lonesome – which has been certified gold by the BPI – is the group’s 12th number one album in the UK, the Official Charts Company said.

The record takes the band “back to their roots” and their “passion for blues music”.

The last time the Rolling Stones reached the top of the charts with a new studio project was more than 20 years ago, with Voodoo Lounge in 1994.

However, in 2010, a remastered reissue of their album Exile On Main St managed to hit the top spot after first winning the accolade in 1972 following its original release.

It has been a good week for the group, as Sir Mick’s girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, 29, gave birth to their first child together in New York on Thursday.
