U.K. MIDWEEKS: YEARS & YEARS AT #1
1/24/22

Olly Alexander’s Years & Years is heading for a second #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with Night Call (Polydor). Over on singles, Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran look set for the top.

Behind Years & Years, which now consists of Alexander following a split with his bandmates, is British newcomers Yard Act, whose debut set, The Overload (Island), is eyeing #2.

Following the death of Meat Loaf, his classic '70s set Bat Out Of Hell (Epic) looks set to re-enter the chart at #3, with Bat Out Of Hell 2: Back Into Hell (Virgin) following at #4 and Hits Out Of Hell (Epic) at #5.

The late legend has four more entries in today’s Top 20: Dead Ringer is #6, The Definitive Collection is #11, Heaven and Hell with Bonnie Tyler at #14 and Welcome to the Neighborhood at #20.

Norwegian artist Aurora could claim her first U.K. Top 10 album on Friday with The Gods We Can Touch (Decca), while The Sherlocks are on track for their second with World I Understand (TeddyBoy Records).

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran’s “Peru” (Island) is up three places to #1 thanks to strong download sales.

Last week’s #1, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” (Disney) by the Encanto cast, has slipped down to #2 but still leads on streams.

Alongside his albums tally, Meat Loaf has three singles in the Top 20: “Bat Out Of Hell” at #4; “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” at #7; and “Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad” at #15.

DJ Lost Frequencies and Calum Scott’s “Where Are You Now” (Insanity) could rise into this week’s Top 10 at #8.
