Gerry Cinnamon adds spice to the midweek Official Albums Chart, charging out in front in the race to become this week’s UK Number 1 with The Bonny.
The Scottish singer-songwriter leads today’s Official Chart Update with his second studio album, which was the biggest album on all formats (physical, download and streaming) over the weekend.
The Bonny has a lead of 13,000 chart sales at the midweek stage, and would mark Gerry’s first Number 1 album. The Scotsman’s debut album Erratic Cinematic peaked at Number 17 last July, nearly two years after its first release, and could sneak into this Friday’s Top 40; it’s currently at Number 34.
