U.K. MIDWEEKS: FEVER PITCH
5/16/22

The fifth studio album from Florence + The Machine is on its way to becoming their fourth U.K. #1 while Harry Styles may have two challengers threatening his shot at a seventh week at #1 at singles.

Florence Welch & company’s Dance Fever (Polydor) has registered more than 26k chart sales and is the best-selling album of the week in the U.K., physically and digitally.

The most streamed album, though, is Kendrick Lamar’s first album in five years, Mr Morale & The Big Steppers (Interscope), which is set to debut at #2 Friday on the Official Albums Chart. The Black KeysDropout Boogie (Nonesuch), at #4, is on course to be their fifth U.K. Top 10. British folkies Bear’s Den may secure their highest-ever charting LP in the U.K. as Blue Hours (Communion) is now #5.

The Rolling Stones’ archival release Live At The El Mocambo (Polydor) is #7 and the debut from Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood’s The Smile, A Light For Attracting Attention (XL) is #9.

The re-release of Toyah’s 1981 live album Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! (Cherry Red) sits at #11, potentially outperforming its original chart position of #22.

At singles, fewer than 2,000 chart sales separate Styles’ “As It Was” (Columbia) and Cat Burns’ “Go” (RCA) and at the midweek mark. Styles, currently #1, is vying for his seventh week atop the chart.

Three songs from Lamar’s Mr Morale & The Big Steppers (Interscope) are eyeing slots in the Top 10: “United in Grief” is #3; “N95” is #4; and “Die Hard” sits at  #6.

Sam Ryder’s second place finish at Eurovision Saturday has propelled his “SPACE MAN” (Parlophone) to #5. It would be the first U.K. Eurovision entry to crack the Top 10 since Scooch’s “Flying the Flag (For You)” in 2007. If it hits #1, it would be the first U.K. Eurovision #1 on the Official Singles Chart in 26 years.

My Chemical Romance’s surprise release “Foundations of Decay” (Warner) is heading for a #14 debut
