Josh Groban has scored his third number one album in America.

All That Echoes is the singer's first to debut on top - his previous number ones, 2003's Closer and 2007's Noel, had to climb to the summit of the Billboard 200.

The new album sold 144,000 copies in its first week.

It hits the top of the chart as fans await Groban's Valentine's Day-themed cameo appearance on U.S. Tv drama Csi: Ny, which will air on Friday (15Feb13).

Meanwhile, Tim MCGraw debuts Two Lanes of Freedom at two and the Now 45 compilation enters the chart at three.
