U.K. MIDWEEKS: REVISITING THE GIBBS
1/11/21

Barry Gibb is on track to claim his first U.K. Official Albums #1 as a solo artist with Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers' Songbook, Vol. 1 (EMI). Over on singles, Little Mix and Ed Sheeran are neck and neck for #1.

Gibb leads this week’s midweek albums chart with a collection of country interpretations of classic Bee Gees hits, featuring the likes of Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Olivia Newton-John and Brandi Carlile.

Singer-songwriter Passenger is currently new at #2 with his 13th studio album, Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted (Cooking Vinyl). Following what would have marked his 74th birthday and the fifth anniversary of his passing, David Bowie’s greatest hits Legacy (Parlophone) rockets 21 places to #10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweek update, Little Mix’s “Sweet Melody” (RCA) could claim a second week but Sheeran’s “Afterglow” (Atlantic) is just 250 sales behind at #2.
