Electronic music veterans Daft Punk have secured their first UK number one with their comeback single Get Lucky.

Their first track in eight years knocked Rudimental's Waiting All Night featuring Ella Eyre off the top spot.

The French duo's previous best charting was 2000's One More Time at number two.

Emeli Sande scored a chart record with her debut album Our Version of Events, which hit its 63rd consecutive week in the top 10, beating a record held for nearly 50 years by The Beatles.

Please Please Me previously held the record for debut album spending the most consecutive weeks in the top 10 when it featured for 62 weeks in 1963 and 1964.

"It feels quite surreal to even have your name mentioned in the same sentence as The Beatles," said the 26-year-old Scottish singer who took the fifth spot in the UK official album chart.

"For a record to stay there for so long it means that people have connected with it so that's how I'm enjoying celebrating this record."

Elsewhere in the album chart, Michael Buble held off competition from Frank Turner and Will.i.am to stay top with To Be Loved.

In the singles chart, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis continued their success with Can't Hold Us, jumping seven places to number five.

The rapper and producer have already achieved the biggest-selling single of 2013 to date with Thrift Shop.

Will.i.am's collaboration with Justin Bieber, ThatPower, fell one place to number three while Calvin Harris' I Need Your Love featuring Ellie Goulding climbed three places to number four.

Just one new entry featured in the top ten. What A Night by Britain's Got Talent's 2012 finalists Loveable Rogues debuted at number nine.

The acoustic hip-hop trio from London are currently supporting Olly Murs on his UK tour.
