Pet Shop Boys are shopping for a rare U.K. No. 1.
The electro-pop duo is on track for their first U.K. 1 album for more than 26 years with Hotspot (X2), which leads the midweek sales chart.
Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe’s 14th studio album takes top spot on the Official Chart Update, with an advantage of 3,000 chart sales over the second-placed album, London rapper J Hus’s sophomore set Big Conspiracy (Black Butter), according to the Official Charts Company.
The Pet Shop Boys have four No. 1 singles to their name but just one albums crown, with October 1993’s Very. All 13 of their previous studio sets have impacted the U.K. top 10.
