U.K. MIDWEEKS: SOUR'S CHALLENGERS
6/1/21

Olivia Rodrigo’s SOUR (Geffen), which claimed the year’s biggest week of album chart sales on Friday, is on the cusp of a second week on the chart throne, racking up the most album streams over the bank holiday. She has two challengers, though.

Life’s A Beach (Island), the debut full-length from Leicester indie-pop quintet Easy Life, is #2 at midweek with the most physical sales so far. The 10th studio album from Texas, Hi (BMG), was the most downloaded set over the holiday weekend and is #3. It’s on course to become Texas’ highest-charting album since The Greatest Hits reached #1 in 2000.

Taylor Swift’s evermore (EMI) returns to the Top 5 following its release on vinyl.  At #4, it’s one slot ahead of Del Amitri’s first album in 19 years, Fatal Mistakes (Cooking Vinyl).

David Bowie rarities set The Width of a Circle (Rhino) is new at #7, experimental rock outfit Black Midi are heading for their first Top 10 with Cavalcade (Rough Trade) at #8, Bugzy Malone’s second LP The Resurrection (B-Somebody) is #9, and Blackberry Smoke’s You Hear Georgia (3 Legged) is #10. Moby is eyeing his 13th U.K. Top 40 album as his orchestral set Reprise (DG) is #12.
