1/31/22

Bedford band Don Broco could secure their first U.K. Official Albums #1 on Friday following the physical release of fourth set, Amazing Things (Sharptone). Over on singles, it looks like another week at the top for Encanto.

Amazing Things arrived digitally in October, when it didn’t reach the Top 40, but its release on vinyl, CD and cassette could secure its place at the top this week.

Liverpool singer/songwriter Jamie Webster could also score a career-best on Friday with his second album, Moments (Modern Sky), starting at #2.

Jethro Tull are heading for their first U.K. Top 10 since ’72 with their first new material since ’99, The Zealot Gene (Century Media), eyeing an entry at #4.

Three further new entries could chart in the Top 10: Welsh band Scarlet RebelsSee Through Blue (Earache) is #6; Cult Leader Tactics (Snapper Music) from former Mansun frontman Paul Draper is #8; and Big Big Train’s self-released Welcome to the Planet orbits #10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” (Walt Disney) from Encanto is currently on track to claim a third week at #1.

Gayle’s “abcdefu” (Atlantic)is #2, followed by Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran’s “Peru” (Island) at #3.

Encanto could lan d three tracks in Friday’s Top 10, with “Surface Pressure” by Jessica Darrow at #4 and “The Family Madrigal” f/Stephanie Beatriz and Olga Merediz looking to jump six places to #5.

Irish DJ collective Belters Only could claim their first Top 10 with “Make Me Feel Good” f/Jazzy (Polydor) at #8, followed by Australian DJ Luude with “Down Under” f/Colin Hay (Sweat It Out) —a rework of the ’81 song by Men At Work—flying seven to #9.
