Taylor Swift is speeding ahead in the race for this week’s Number 1 album with her seventh studio album Lover, potentially knocking Ed Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project down to Number 2.
Clocking over 36,000 chart sales so far across physical sales, downloads and streaming equivalent sales, Taylor is well on her way to claiming her fourth consecutive Number 1 with the record, which features Top 40 hits Me ft. Brendon Urie, You Need To Calm Down and title track Lover.
The latest release from US collective Brockhampton, Ginger, opens at Number 12, while Massive Attack’s 1998 album Mezzanine is set to make a Top 40 return thanks to an anniversary reissue.
Headliners from last weekend’s Reading and Leeds Festivals are seeing a surge in sales: Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys is so far up three places to Number 25, and Foo Fighters’ Greatest Hits has climbed 6 places to 27.
Finally, Texas trio Midland could claim their first UK Top 40 album with Let It Roll at 30, and Liverpool indie outfit The Night Café could see their debut album 0151 land in the Top 40, currently at Number 32.
