Elbow ‘Audio Vertigo’ Makes Noise on Midweek U.K. Chart

Elbow turns up the volume with Audio Vertigo, the leader on the midweek U.K. chart.

Audio Vertigo is the Bury, England band’s 10th studio album. And if it holds its position, the collection will give Guy Garvey and Co. their fourth U.K. leader after 2014’s The Take Off And Landing Of Everything, 2017’s Little Fictions and 2019’s Giants Of All Sizes.

Based on sales and streaming data captured at the midweek point, the British alternative rock outfit holds off Future and Metro Boomin’s collaborative collection, We Don’t Trust You. It’s at No. 2 on the midweek chart, and should become Future’s fourth and Metro Boomin’s third U.K. top 10 album. Three tracks from it are aiming for top 20 debuts on the national singles survey.

Veteran Scottish alt-rock act the Jesus and Mary Chain could snag a career-best with Glasgow Eyes. It’s forecast to complete an all-new top 3, at No. 3, for the group’s third top 10 title.

Following the release of a deluxe edition, Olivia Rodrigo’s former leader GUTS should spill into the top 10 once again. It’s up 15-4 on the chart blast. The LP, which originally logged a single week at No. 1 in 2023, should yield the week’s highest new Official Singles Chart entry, with “Obsessed” predicted to bow at No. 6. The “Spilled” version of GUTS includes five more songs, including a new cut, “So American”; the other four songs were the “secret” tracks that appeared on a variety of GUTS vinyl releases: “Obsessed,” “Scared of My Guitar,” “Stranger” and “Girl I’ve Always Been”.

Finally, new titles from Starsailor (Where The Wild Things Grow), Fletcher (In Search Of The Antidote) and The Staves (All Now) are cruising for top 10 berths, while LPs from Waxahatchee (Tigers Blood at No. 12), a project led by Alabama-born singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield, and Gossip (Real Power at No. 18) could bag top 20 debuts.

All will be revealed when the Official Charts are published late Friday, March 29.
