Evanescence are currently on course to go straight in at Number One with their new, self-titled album on Sunday (October 16).

The Arkansas rockers, who last released an album in 2006, are presently holding off competition from Steps in the race for the top spot. The reunited pop band are at Number Two with their new compilation 'The Ultimate Collection'.

The new albums from Ryan Adams, Cliff Richard, Katherine Jenkins and Jason Derulo are also all set to debut in the Top 10 this weekend, with Bjork currently just outside at Number 11 with 'Biophilia'. Further down the chart, Radiohead are presently at 25 with their new remix album 'TKOL 1234567', while You Me At Six, who debuted at Number Three last week, fall a whopping 21 places to Number 24.

In the singles chart, Rihanna looks odd on for a second week at the top with her new single 'We Found Love', which is sitting at the summit of an unchanged top three.

There are set to be two new entries at Number Four and Five respectively, with Gym Class Heroes' comeback single 'Stereo Hearts' occupying the former and X Factor Matt Cardle's single 'Run For Your Life' in the latter position.
