Celebrating 50 years since it was first released, David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane (Parlophone) is heading for a Top 10 re-entry at #7, thanks to a special anniversary half-master speed vinyl release.

Joe Bonamassa’s Tales of Time (J&R Adventures) looks set to score him his sixth U.K. Top 10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, “Miracles” (Columbia) by Harris and Goulding remains on top.

This week’s highest new entry looks set to be “Daylight” (Miserable Music) by TikTok star David Kushner, at #2. Lewis Capaldi’s new single, “Wish You The Best” (Vertigo/EMI), is also off to a strong start at #3 today.

“Heaven” (Capitol) by Niall Horan could break into the Top 10 for the first time after rising 13 places to #9 . Finally, Post Malone’s “Chemical” (Mercury/Republic) is tracking for a #12 debut.
