      Jamie T set for first-ever UK Number 1 album with The Theory of Whatever as Jack White, Bananarama and more impact chart

      Jack White, Bananarama, The Kooks and Gilbert O'Sullivan are also tracking Top 10 midweek
      By Carl Smith
      Jamie T is set for a triumphant return to the Official Albums Chart, with The Theory of Whatever on course to become his first-ever UK Number 1 record after a six-year break.

      The indie-rock singer-songwriter, real name Jamie Alexander Treays, could score his first chart-topper and fifth Top 5 album overall as he takes an early lead midweek. The Wimbledon-born artist has previously enjoyed success with 2007 debut Panic Prevention (4), 2009’s Kings & Queens (2), 2014 LP Carry on the Grudge (4) and 2016 release Trick (3). See Jamie T’s full Official Charts history here.

      Jack White’s fifth studio album, and second full-length of the year, Entering Heaven Alive eyes a Number 2 entry this week. The record looks set to give Jack his fifth solo Top 5 album, with the Detroit native having previously topped the Official Albums Chart three times; with 2012’s Blunderbuss, 2014 release Lazaretto and 2018 LP Boarding House Reach. Previous album Fear of the Dawn, released in April 2022, peaked at Number 4.

      Four decades into their career, pop duo Bananarama could score a new career best with Masquerade. Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward’s twelfth studio album currently stands at Number 5 midweek. Should it hold on, it’ll prove the group’s highest-ever Official Albums Chart placing, beating 1983 debut Deep Sky Diving, which peaked at Number 8.

      Read our exclusive interview with Bananarama here.



      Elsewhere in the Top 10, Brighton-born group The Kooks could achieve their highest-charting record in 14 years with sixth studio release 10 Tracks to Echo in the Dark (8). The indie-rock outfit, comprising Luke Pritchard, Max Rafferty and Paul Garred, previously enjoyed success with 2006 debut Inside In/Inside Out (2), 2008’s Konk (1), 2011 release Junk of the Heart (10), 2014 LP Listen (16) and 2018 record Let’s Go Sunshine (9).

      Gilbert O’Sullivan is on course to claim his fifth Top 10 album this week with Driven (10). The Irish singer-songwriter’s twentieth studio LP could provide him his highest Official Albums Chart entry in 48 years; his last Top 10 being 1974’s A Stranger in the Back of My Yard (9).

      Bob Marley & the Wailers’ Bob Marley & the Chineke! Orchestra – a new collection of the group’s greatest works reimagined by the acclaimed Chineke! Orchestra - looks set to become their fourteenth Top 40 album (26), while ZZ Tops’ Raw – That Little Ol’ Band from Texas soundtrack could become the American rock trio’s ninth (27)

      Paul Weller’s ninth solo studio album 22 Dreams eyes a return to the Top 40 this week thanks to a vinyl reissue (28). Originally released in 2008, the album was one of six solo chart-toppers for Paul to date. See Paul Weller’s full Official Charts history here.

      And finally, Billie Eilish’s 2021 album Happier Than Ever jumps 7 places midweek (35). The LA-born singer-songwriter surprise-released her Guitar Songs single last week; debuting new tracks TV and The 30th.

          • Either the market's crashing or there's more data than normal missing from this wednesday update as everybody's sales have declined considerably compared to last week (LF Systems by ~10,000!)

            Comment


            • Pleased to see Paolo hanging on in the top 10.

              As per, there's more than a handful of legacy or hits albums in the top 40, the staying power of albums like Legend, Gold and Rumours is astounding.

              • Why are Taylor Swift albums climbing in lower TOP 40?

                    Beyonce sets sight on fourth UK Number 1 album with RENAISSANCE currently outselling the Top 5

                    With BREAK MY SOUL also flying up the Official Singles Chart - can Bey secure an Official Charts Double this week?
                    By George Griffiths
                    Beyoncé’s chart RENAISSANCE continues in abundance today – as her seventh solo record sets its sights on becoming her fourth UK Number 1 album.

                    RENAISSANCE is currently out-selling the rest of the Top 5 combined, with its lead single BREAK MY SOUL also currently challenging for the UK’s Number 1 single. Could Bey claim the Official Chart Double this week?

                    The US superstar has previously topped the Official Albums Chart on three occasions as a solo artist; with debut LP Dangerously in Love (2003), 4 (2011) and magnum opus Lemonade (2016). As a member of Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé also counts Survivor (2001) as a chart-topping album. Discover Beyoncé’s Official Charts history in full here.

                    Maggie Rogers’ expectation-defying second album Surrender is on track to become her first-ever Top 10 record in the UK this week (3), while electronic duo Orbital could net their fourth Top 10 album with 30 Something (5).

                    Wakefield indie-rock outfit The Cribs’ re-release of their first three albums might see them net a hat-trick of Top 10 entries this week; Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever (4) has the potential to become their highest-charting album ever, followed-up by The New Fellas (7) and The Cribs (8).

                    Elsewhere, Kate Bush’s greatest hits collection The Whole Story could re-enter the Top 40 (23), as could The Chemical Brothers’ special 25th anniversary re-issue of their second LP Dig Your Own Hole (26). Both albums peaked at Number 1 upon their original releases in 1986 and 1997 respectively.

                    And finally, US country-rock outfit Whiskey Myers’ sixth album Tornillo could become their first-ever entry in the UK Official Chart Top 40 (36).

                        Always thought she would be over 10k physical albums on first week but I guess not.

                          It's possibly a sign that the casual CD buyers market is now dead. I live in a town with a population of 67,000 and there's not one single shop that sells records.

                              But other artists can sell more than that as we've seen. Maybe they didn't manufacture many CDs as they expected her to do best on streams. It's not really a typical mainstream Bey album. There's no big world-conquering radio hit on it. Asda don't even have it in stock so how are casual buyers even supposed to find it? https://groceries.asda.com/search/cd...arch-cd&page=1

                              • Tittering a bit at Orbital's album title. I'd say the Brothers Hartnoll are emphatically 50-something, if not pushing 60-something by now!

                                      it is - see iTunes thread. But there isn't the same frenzy for it as it directly refers to the men's game. They did play it after the win at Wembley but Sweet Caroline is more popular.

                                        sadly it's only few songs/singles that were remixed - I thought it would be the proper the best of

                                          It seems Beyonce's physicals have increased a lot, according to Buzzjack. Vinyl 2.8k and CD 4.5k. So data was added late or shipments were late.

                                          • So Harry and George (and of course Beyonce) have all increased compared to Wednesday last week and so may be reset.....!
                                            Apparently less data is missing this week, so may still be a decline for Harry and George....

                                              • This was a smart move, release the remixes on the peak week for streaming to get an higher peak. Will it be enough?

                                                • ^..... And yet it's still one of her most forgettable and dull single releases. I think the expression for me at least is something to do with faecal matter and polish.....
