U.K. MIDWEEKS: LANA'S RAY OF HOPE
9/2/19

Lana Del Rey is heading for her fourth #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with Norman F**king Rockwell (Polydor), outperforming closest competitor Tool by more than double. Over on singles, Ed Sheeran and Stormzy are on course for a second week at the top.

Tool sits behind Lana at #2 with Fear Inoculum (Music for Nations), which looks set to become their highest charting album in the U.K. to date.

Oasis’ debut album, Definitely Maybe (Big Brother), has risen to #5 thanks to a 25th anniversary reissue.

The third highest new albums entry today is the self-titled solo debut of Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno, The S.L.P. (Sony), starting at #6. The sixth album from Kano, Hoodies All Summer (Parlophone), opens at #8, and Sheryl Crow’s final studio album, collaborative project Threads (Big Machine), is at #9.

Over on the U.K.'s Official Singles midweeks, Sheeran f/Stormzy’s “Take Me Back to London” (Atlantic) is set for a second week at #1. New Sony priority, British rapper Aitch, has risen into the Top 5 with “Taste (Make it Shake)” (Since 93) up three places to #3. Joel Corry’s “Sorry” (Atlantic) is also new in the Top 5, up two to #5.

The highest new singles entry at the halfway point is Post Malone’s “Circles” (Island) at #10. He also makes an appearance in the title of Sam Feldt’s “Post Malone” f/Rani (Atlantic), which has risen 13 places to #13 today.
