David Gilmour looks set to land a second No.1 solo album

It’s a great start to the week for legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour – he leads the race for the top of the Official Albums Chart with fourth studio album 'Rattle That Lock'.

Last at No.1 only 10 months ago with Pink Floyd's on 'The Endless River', Gilmour’s 'Rattle That Lock' outpaces nearest rival Lana Del Rey by over 12,000 combined sales, putting him on track to take the top spot this coming Friday.

It’s over nine years since David topped the charts with a solo release, when 'On An Island' did the honours in 2006. He’s scored six chart-topping albums with Pink Floyd, including 1973 classic 'Dark Side Of The Moon', which has sold over 4 million copies and is one of the bestselling albums of all time in the UK.

Lana Del Rey is on track to score another Top 10 with her third album 'Honeymoon', at No.2 on today’s Update. Lana’s previous releases both debuted at No.1. Cliff Richard is on course for a 43rd Top 10 album with new collection '75 at 75 – 75 Career Spanning Hits', which starts at No.3, while former chart-topper Jess Glynne’s 'I Cry When I Laugh' holds firm at No.4.

Rolling Stone's Keith Richards look set to hit a solo chart peak, at No.5 on today’s Update. 'Crosseyed Heart' will be Keith’s first solo Top 40 entry since 'Talk Is Cheap' peaked at No.37 in 1988.

American hard rockers Shinedown could be celebrating a new chart peak this week with 'Threat To Survival' landing at No.7, and Gabrielle Aplin looks set to add a second Top 10 to her portfolio as 'Light Up The Dark' debuts at 8.

Canadian star Carly Rae Jepsen’s second album 'Emotion' starts at No.15, and singer-songwriter Rhodes’ debut album 'Wishes' lands at 17. Jack Savoretti’s 'Written In Scars' leaps 64 places to land back in the Top 40 at 22 and there’s another high climber right behind – Rudimental’s 'Home' rockets 57 places to stand at No.23 on the Update.
