4/15/24

James and Mark Knopfler are battling it out for this week’s U.K. Official Albums #1. Over on singles, Hozier is set for a second week at the top.

James’ 18th album Yummy (Nothing But Love Music) leads the charge at today’s halfway point. Should it hold onto its position for Friday, it will be the Manchester band’s second #1.

One Deep River (EMI) from the former Dire Straits leader Knopfler is just 3k sales behind at #2.

British rock band Kris Barras Band could have their first Top 10 with Halo Effect (Earache) a new entry at #4. Linkin Park’s Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000-2023) (Warner Records) could become their ninth U.K. Top 10, starting at #5 today.

English Teacher’s This Could Be Texas (Island) is new at #6; Scottish band Gun are #7 with Hombres (Cooking Vinyl); and Maggie RogersDon’t Forget Me (Capitol) is #8.

Lifeblood (Sony) by Manic Street Preachers is in the Top 10 for the first time at #9 thanks to a 20th anniversary reissue. WE STILL DON’T TRUST YOU (Boominati/Freebandz/Republic/Epic) by Future & Metro Boomin is #10.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, “Too Sweet” (Island) by Hozier is heading for a second week at #1.

“Supersonic” (Big Brother) by Oasis, who are celebrating 10 years since the release of their debut single, might enter the Top 10 for the first time at #6. The track peaked at #31 in 1994.

Little Mix member Perrie could claim this week’s highest new entry at #7 with her debut solo release, “Forget About Us” (Columbia), which was co-written with Ed Sheeran. Dua Lipa’s “Illusion” (Warner Records) could be the third consecutive Top 10 single from her upcoming set, Radical Optimism. It’s on track to debut at #8.
