4/25/22

Fontaines D.C. are on their way to their first-ever U.K. #1 album, Harry Styles is aiming for a monthlong stay atop the Official Singles Chart, and Record Store Day’s impact is being seen in the Top 30.

Skinty Fia (Partisan) from the Dublin-born group has outsold its closest competition 4:1, with physical sales accounting for more than 90% of its midweek tally. The band’s previous peak was 2020’s A Hero’s Death.

Spiritualized’s ninth studio album Everything Was Beautiful (Fat Possum) is #2 midweek with the reissue of Brian May’s 1998 solo album, Another World (Virgin) close behind at #3.

Stone Broken’s third studio record Revelation (Spinefarm) is #5, Bob Vylan’s Bob Vylan Presents: The Price of Life (Ghost Theatre) is #6 and Pusha T’s It’s Almost Dry (0207) is looking at #7.

The impact of Record Store Day is seen at #9 with The StreetsOriginal Pirate Material (Locked On), which received a limited edition vinyl release, while the EP version of David Bowie’s Toy (Parlophone) is #10.

Other RSD releases looking at Top 40 debuts on Friday include Childish Gambino’s 2014 mixtape Kauai (Glassnote), Blur’s 1998 album Bustin’ + Dronin’ (Parlophone), T-Rex’s The Slider (Demon), Bowie’s Brilliant Adventure (Parlophone) and Slipknot’s self-titled 1999 Roadrunner debut.

On the singles chart, Styles’ “As It Was” (Columbia) has a good shot at a fourth week at #1 while new peaks appear in store for  Cat Burns’ “Go” (Since 93/RCA) at #3 and Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran’s “Bam Bam” (Epic) at #7.

London rapper Potter Payper could secure his first-ever U.K. Top 10 single this week as “Gangsteritus” (Def Jam) rises 30 slots to #10.

Taylor Swift’s Record Store Day release of “The Lakes” as a 7-inch vinyl has it targeting #11.
