U.K. MIDWEEKS: 4-WAY BATTLE FOR #1
10/25/21

Elton John, Duran Duran, Lana Del Rey and Biffy Clyro are locked in a four-way battle for #1 on the U.K.'s Official Albums midweek chart. Over on singles, Adele’s “Easy on Me” (Columbia) is set for a second week at the top.

At the halfway point, John’s The Lockdown Sessions (EMI) is leading the way on albums but with just 4.5k sales separating the Top 4, the top spot is in play.

Duran Duran’s Future Past (BMG) is close behind at #2 while Del Rey opens at #3 with Blue Banisters (Polydor). Biffy Clyro’s The Myth of the Happily Ever After (Warner Music U.K.) sits at #4 while Coldplay’s chart-topping Music of the Spheres (Parlophone) drops to #5 but continues to lead the way on streaming.

Three more new releases could land in this week’s Top 10: a 40th anniversary expanded edition of The Rolling StonesTattoo You (Polydor) at #7, Prioritise Pleasure (Universal) by Self Esteem at #8, and A View From The Top Of The World (InsideOutMusic) by Dream Theater at #9.
