Daft Punk's fourth studio album is this year's fastest-selling record.

Random Access Memories has sold 133,000 copies in the UK overtaking Michael Buble's To Be Loved, which was previously number one.

The album is set to debut at number one this weekend and is outselling the rest of the top 10 combined.

Lead single Get Lucky, which features Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, is also 2013's biggest-selling single so far.

It has overtaken Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop featuring Wanz.

Get Lucky has sold nearly 700,000 since it went on sale around six weeks ago, according to figures from the Official Charts Company.

The duo say they never expected their track Get Lucky to be received as well as it had been.

In an interview with Radio 1's Zane Lowe they said: "It's pretty surreal. We recorded this record over the last five years and we are pretty disconnected from the rest of the world."

The single has been number one for three weeks selling more than 492,000 copies and broke streaming records on Spotify.

Daft Punk say they have no plans to tour the new album.
