Royal Blood look set to top this week’s U.K. Official Albums Chart with Typhoons (Warner Records) outselling the rest of the Top 5 at the halfway mark. Over on singles, Billie Eilish currently claims the highest new entry.

Royal Blood lead an all-new Top 8 today after the bank holiday weekend, and are followed by The Coral with Coral Island (Modern Sky) at #2.

Live album, Celebrate the Music of Peter Green (BMG)—a tribute record to Fleetwood Mac’s founding guitarist—is new at #3, while Pink Floyd live album, Live at Knebworth 1990 (Legacy), starts at #4.

Birdy could collect her second Top 5 album with Young Heart (Atlantic) at #5 and Fortitude (Roadrunner) from French heavy metal group Gojira is new at #6. Scottish rock band Teenage Fanclub starts at #7 with Endless Arcade (PeMa), followed by Norwegian singer/songwriter Girl In Red’s debut, If I Could Make It Go Quiet (AWAL), at #8.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles midweeks, Tion Wayne and Russ Millions’ “Body” (Atlantic) is challenging Lil Nas X for the top spot. The track sits at #1 although by a margin of 100 sales, ahead of “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” (RCA) at #2. Eilish’s “Your Power” (Polydor) starts at #6.

Lots of songs are eyeing up brand new peaks this week, including “Friday” (Ministry of Sound) by Riton, Nightcrawlers, Mufasa & Hypeman at #3, and “Let’s Go Home Together” (Atlantic) by Ella Henderson & Tom Grennan, which sits at #9.

The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” (Island) has flown 10 places in #10 in just 48 hours following a new remix featuring Ariana Grande.
