U.K. MIDWEEKS: CHANGES AT THE TOP
7/5/22

After several weeks of creeping up the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, LF System’s “Afraid To Feel” (Warner) appears headed for #1. Meanwhile, Paolo Nutini is on course to claim his third U.K. #1 album.

The Scottish DJ duo’s “Afraid To Feel” is among multiple acts looking to make new chart peaks. George Ezra’s “Green Green Grass” (Columbia) is up two to #3 at the midweek mark; Burna Boy’s “Last Last” (Bad Habit/Spaceship/Atlantic), at #17, has cracked  the Top 20 for the first time, and Ella Henderson is looking at two entries in the Top 10—"Crazy What Love Can Do” (Parlophone) with David Guetta and Becky Hill is currently #8 and “21 Reasons” (Atlantic) with Nathan Dawe is #9.

Nutini’s “Throughout The Echoes” (Atlantic) could be this week’s highest new entry. It’s pacing for a #23 debut.

At albums, there’s little doubt where Nutini’s Last Night in the Bittersweet will land: It’s currently outselling its closest competition 4:1. It’s the 35-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter’s first release in eight years; he previously topped the Official Albums Chart in 2014 and 2009.

Shinedown’s seventh studio album, Planet Zero (Parlophone), is eyeing a #2 entry, which would be their first Top 5 hit in the U.K. Unprecedented (UMC) from UB40 f/Ali Campbell and Astro is heading for a #6 debut; Nick Cave’s Seven Psalms (AWAL), a collection of spoken word pieces set to music recorded with long-time collaborator Warren Ellis is in line for #8; and Imagine DragonsMercury – Act 1 and Act 2 (Interscope) could land at #9.

The Baz Luhrmann film Elvis has rejuvenated enough interest in The King to push ELV1S: 30 Number 1 Hits (RCA) back into the Top 20. And Adele’s BST Hyde Park performances over the weekend have resulted in 30 (Columbia) rising 46 places to #28 midweek.
