3/11/19

The British music scene has truly woken up out of a slump, with Foals on course to claim their first Official Albums #1 on Friday with Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost–Part 1 (Warner Bros.), while new releases from Sigrid, Dido and Dave start in the Top 5.

At the midweek stage, Foals are currently ahead of Sigrid by 2k combined sales and are on course to better their previous peak of #2, reached with Holy Fire in 2013.

Norwegian artist Sigrid, who has been signed and developed in the U.K. by Island, starts at #2 with her debut, Sucker Punch, while Dido sits just 136 combined sales behind at #3 with her first album in six years, Still On My Mind (BMG).
