Foo Fighters are to set to end Adele's run of 11 weeks at the top of the album chart on Sunday (April 17).

The band's seventh album 'Wasting Light' is currently selling 50% faster than Adele's '21' in the midweek charts.

The latest compilation from Glee, 'Glee The Music: Volume 5' is presently at Number Three, while Katy B's 'On A Mission' is placed at Number Five.

In the singles chart, last week's Number Two 'Party Rock Anthem' from LMFAO is on course to top the chart, pushing Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull's 'On The Floor' down to Number Two.

Check NME this Sunday from 7pm (BST) for the full chart rundown.

Foo Fighters are on the cover of the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands or available digitally.
