Indie pop duo Twenty One Pilots are celebrating their first ever US Number 1 album, after the group’s second major label record Blurryface entered at the top of the Billboard 200. It sold 146,000 copies in the week ending May 24th, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Of that figure, a solid 134,000 were direct album sales, a healthy indication of the recent resurgence in physical music purchasing. Blurryface is Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun’s fourth album in total, following their Fueled By Ramen debut Vessel back in 2013.

Madonna's 11th studio album – and her last with Warner Bros – will be named Licorice, stateside reports have said.

Former Billboard editor Larry Flick's OutQ radio show said the 13-track album would be released next April.

Two of the Queen of Pop's new tracks also got an airing; Candy Shop and the Kanye West-featuring The Beat Goes On.

According to fan websites, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Pharrell Williams all guest on the new CD.

OutQ also claimed that Licorice, understood to have been presented to Warner Bros bosses this week, will include a reworked version of The Devil Wouldn't Recognise You.
