Merseyside outfit The Coral are on track for a sixth Top 10 album -- and highest chart position since 2003 -- with their double album Coral Island (Run On). It’s new at No. 2.
Just behind is Celebrating The Music of Peter Green (BMG), an all-star tribute to the late Fleetwood Mac founding member, while another live album, Pink Floyd’s Live at Knebworth 1990 (Rhino), is at No. 4 on the chart blast.
British folk singer Birdy is flying to a second Top 5 album with Young Heart (Atlantic), new at No. 5, while French heavy metal group Gojira (Fortitude at No. 6 via Roadrunner), veteran Scottish alt-rock five-piece Teenage Fanclub (Endless Arcade at No. 7 via Pema), and DIY Norwegian singer-songwriter Girl in Red (If I Could Make It Go Quiet at No. 8 via Marie Ulven) are chasing Top 10 spots.
The most-streamed album so far this week is DJ Khaled’s collaboration-stuffed 12th studio album Khaled Khaled (Black Butter/We The Best), opening at No. 10.
