Olivia Rodrigo plans another UK brace
Next best-placed album is from indie-pop Leicester band Easy Life, whose debut album Life is a beach (Island) is at No. 2 on the chart and has recorded the most combined physical sales so far this week.
Meanwhile, veteran Scottish rockers from Texas are new to No.3 with their 10th studio album Hi (BMG). The compilation was downloaded the most over the holiday weekend, according to the Official Charts Company, and is on track to become Texas’ most popular release since. The greatest successes reached number 1 in 2000.
Taylor Swift returns to the Top 10 midweek with Always (EMI), which peaked following its vinyl release. Former chart leader returns to No.4, ahead of Scottish band Del Amitri Fatal errors (Cooking Vinyl), their first album in 19 years. Fatal errors is at # 5 on the chart midweek.
Further down the list, the release of David Bowie‘s posthumous rarities The width of a circle (N ° 7 via Parlophone), Black Midi’s Cavalcade (N ° 8 via Rough Trade), Bugzy Malone’s The resurrection (No. 9 via B Somebody) and Blackberry Smoke’s You hear Georgia (No. 10 via 3 Legged) shoot for the next level.
Official UK singles and albums charts are released late Friday local time.
