One Direction have stormed the US album chart again with their latest album ‘Take Me Home’.

In its first week it sold 540,000 copies giving the boy band their second American number one album this year.

Only two albums have sold more in the first week of release this year, Mumford & Son’s ‘Babel’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘Red,’ which sold 1.2 million copies.

Harry took to Twitter to thank fans: “We just want to say a massive thanks to all the fans who have supported us,” he said.

“We can send tweets and thank them, but 140 characters is never going be enough to say how much it means.”

The album has also topped the charts in more than 30 countries, including the UK.

Their debut album ‘Up All Night’ reached number two in the UK although it did get a number one on the US Billboard 200.
