U.K. MIDWEEKS: ARCTIC MONKEYS SET FOR SIXTH #1

Arctic Monkeys have sold 66k combined copies of sixth studio album, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino (Domino), at the midway point, setting it up to become the band’s sixth U.K. Official Albums #1. Over on Singles, Childish Gambino is up eight places to #6 at midweek.

Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino is currently outselling the entire U.K. Top 20 combined, with 67% of its sales physical. The record is the British band’s first new music since the release of AM in 2013, which has risen 29 places to #11. Fans are also delving into the band’s deeper catalog—debut Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not is up 30 positions to #20 and sophomore release, Favourite Worst Nightmare, has scaled 71 places to #40.

Charlie Puth is set for the second highest new albums entry this week with Voicenotes (Atlantic) starting at #3.

Outside of the Top 5, roots guitarist Ry Cooder is at #8 with The Prodigal Son (Caroline), while dream-pop duo Beach House are chasing their first Top 10 with seventh album, 7 (Bella Union), at #9.

On the Official Singles Chart, Dua Lipa and Calvin Harris are set for a fifth week at #1 with “One Kiss” (Columbia/Warner Bros.). Ariana Grande is back up one place to #2 with “No Tears Left to Cry” (Island).

After entering at #14 last week with “This is America” (Columbia), Childish Gambino has risen into the Top 10 at #6. Shawn Mendes is another high riser with “In My Blood” (Virgin EMI) up 14 places to #7 after the release of its acoustic version.

Arctic Monkeys also have three new tracks in the Top 20: “Four Out of Five” at #12, “Star Treatment” at #13 and “One Point Perspective” at #17.

Finally, Rita Ora starts at #18 with “Girls” f/Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX (Atlantic).
