Foals’ seventh studio album, Life is Yours, is looking to repeat the chart-topping feat of their last release, 2019’s Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part II. Will the numbers be strong enough to keep Drake from securing his fifth U.K. #1 album with the digital-only Honestly, Nevermind

Elsewhere, the physical release of The Smile’s A Light For Attracting Attention (XL) has pushed the debut of Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood’s side project to #3, its first journey into the Top 5.

A 50th anniversary half-speed master re-issue of David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (Parlophone) is sitting at #7. Reissues from Prince and The Beach Boys are also eyeing Top 30 debuts.

The first collaboration between actress/singer Jessie Buckley and former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, For All Our Days that Tear the Heart (EMI), is #9 at mid-week. Nova Twins’s second studio LP Supernova (Marshall) is #11, vying to become their first-ever U.K. Top 20.

At singles, Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” () has a firm hold on the top slot for a second week with LF System’s “Afraid To Feel” (Warner) moving up to #3.

Drake has three new tracks in the Top 10: “Falling Back” at #4; “Texts Go Green” at #6; and “Jimmy Cooks” f/21 Savage at #7.  “Glimpses Of Us,” the breakout single from 12 Tone’s Joji, is currently #19.
