Declan McKenna tops UK midweek album charts with second effort Zeros (Columbia), in front of the Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup (Polydor) reissue.
Based on the weekend sales activity reported by the official charts company, Zeros has moved the most physical units of the week so far to lead the official graphics update.
McKenna got his break in 2015 when he won the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition. His first album What do you think of the car? peaked at No. 11 on the official UK Albums chart after its release in 2017.
Meanwhile, the Stones move on to another major impact with Goat’s Head Soup, an album that ruled national sales on both sides of the Atlantic in 1973.
Reissue on September 4 Goat’s Head Soup is the market leader in downloads and slots at # 2 on the midweek chart. If he lifts his game, Goat’s Head Soup would become the 13th No. 1 Hall of Famers album.
The special packages of Goat’s Head Soup features 10 bonus tracks with alternate versions, outtakes and at least three unreleased tracks, including “All The Rage” and “Scarlet” with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page on guitar and Blind Faith’s Rick Grech on bass.
Elsewhere in the midweek chart, electronic duo Hurt – consisting of Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson – are on track for their first Top 10 album in seven years with Was (Lento), new at n ° 5.
Caribbean Queen singer Billy Ocean is just behind in 6th row with One world (Sony Music CG), his first new album in seven years.
New LP from progressive rockers The Pineapple Thief (Versions of the truth at n ° 14 via Kscope), rappers 6ix9ine (Tattletales au n ° 23 via Scumgang) et Big Sean (Detroit 2 at # 25 via Def Jam) and British trip-hop veteran Tricky (To fall into pieces at # 31 via K7) are aiming for a Top 40 debut.
On the midweek singles chart, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” (Atlantic) continues her reign, ahead of 24kGoldn’s “Mood” (Black Butter) with Iann Dior and Nathan Dawe’s “Lighter” (Atlantic) with KSI, respectively.
Official charts for UK singles and albums are released on Friday evening local time.
