Ride are also in for a Top 10 debut with their sixth album, This Is Not a Safe Place (Wichita), starting at #4.

Taylor Swift, meanwhile, should score her 14th U.K. Top 10 single with “Lover.”

Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” with Kygo (Columbia) is currently up two places to #3, and rapper Lil Tecca is heading for his first Top 10, with “Ransom” (Island) up five to #8.
