Future Islands starts at #11 with As Long As You Are (4AD), ahead of U.K. country duo Ward Thomas, whose Invitation (East West) is currently #13.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, 24kGoldn is set to scoop a fourth week at #1 with “Mood” f/Iann Dior (Black Butter) currently leading by 1,500 chart sales.

Headie One f/AJ Tracey and Stormzy’s “Ain’t It Different” (Relentless) is up two to a potential new peak of #2. The British rapper is also on course for this week’s highest new entry with “Princess Cuts” f/Young T & Bugsey at #14.
