Kate Bush's 'Director's Cut' on course to topple Adele in albums chart

Singer's new LP is Number One in the midweeks

Kate Bush's 'Director's Cut' on course to topple Adele in albums chart
Kate Bush is on course to end Adele's run at the top of the UK albums chart this week (beginning May 16) with her new record 'Director's Cut'.

Adele's second album '21' has spent a total of 15 weeks at the top of the albums chart, including the last four weeks in a row. But Bush's new album, which is a collection of re-recorded versions of tracks from her 1989 album 'The Sensual World' and 1993's 'The Red Shoes', has sold more copies this week so far.

Friendly Fires are also set for a high new entry, with their second album 'Pala' currently at Number Four in the midweeks. Danger Mouse and composer Daniele Luppi's new album 'Rome', featuring Jack White and Norah Jones, is the midweek Number 12.

Bruno Mars looks set to hold on to the Number One spot for a second week with 'The Lazy Song' in a singles chart that could feature four tracks from Lady Gaga in its Top 20.

Check NME.COM this Sunday from 7pm (BST) for the final chart results.
