LONDON (Reuters) - British band Blur hit the top of the UK album chart on Sunday with "The Magic Whip", the group's first number one album in 12 years, the Official Charts Company said.

Nearly 24 years since their debut album, Blur saw off Taylor Swift's "1989" and James Bay's "Chaos and the Calm", which placed second and third respectively. Former number one "Stages" by Josh Groban charted in fourth, ahead of "Title" by Meghan Trainor.
