U.K. MIDWEEKS: A BATTLE FOR #1

New albums from Foals and James Arthur are duking it out for the top slot on the U.K. Official Albums Chart. Meanwhile, Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey” (Parlophone) is pacing ahead of the competition and is set for a fourth week at #1 at singles.

Foals’ sixth studio album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 (Warner) is less than 600 chart sales ahead of Arthur’s third full-length, You (SYCO). If Foals, holds on it will their first #1; James, who has the lead on digital downloads, topped the chart in 2016.

Napalm’s Alter Bridge could match their career peak if Walk The Sky holds at #3. The Underrated Youth from Interscope’s Yungblud is #4 and Daniel O’Donnell’s Halfway To Paradise (DMGTV), is #5; it would be his 39th Top 40 album.

Jimmy Eat World are on track for their highest-charting album ever in the U.K. with their tenth studio album Surviving (Exotic Locations) at 10. Floating PointsCrush (Ninja Tune) could be his first Top 40 album; it’s at #18.

Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey” (Parlophone) is pacing ahead of the competition and is set for a fourth week at #1. Eyeing a move into the Top 10 are Riton & Oliver Heldens f/Vula’s “Turn Me On” (Ministry of Sound), currently #8, “Buss Down” from Since 93 rapper Aitch f/Ziezie, which is #10. Maroon 5’s “Memories” (Interscope) is up eight slots to #11.
