Daft Punk are set for a third week at the top of the Official UK Singles Chart with their track ‘Get Lucky’.
The song, which is the first to be taken from the duo’s forthcoming new album ‘Random Access Memories’, has spent the past two weeks at Number One, selling over 100,000 copies in each week it has been available. The track is now on course to sell over 500,000 copies and is easily the French act’s biggest selling UK single, overtaking their 2000 Number Two hit ‘One More Time’.
Chris Malinchak’s song ‘So Good To Me’ looks set to be the victim of Daft Punk’s success with the track looking to miss out on the top spot, landing at Number Two instead. Elsewhere, there are new entries for Armin Van Buuren and Gabrielle Aplin.
Meanwhile, in the Official Album Chart, little known Dutch jazz singer Caro Albert is leading the race for Number One with her second studio album, ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’. The album is around 3,000 sales ahead of the current Number One, Rudimental’s ‘Home’. The Top Five looks set to feature a number of new entries with Alison Moyet (3), Hugh Laurie (4) and Lady Antebellum (5), all selling well so far this week. Noah And The Whale are also heading for their third Top 10 album on Sunday, with the band at Number Eight today with ‘Heart Of Nowhere’ while Savages debut album ‘Silence Yourself’ is at 17.
Other new entries are due from Public Service Broadcasting, with debut album ‘Inform, Educate, Entertain’ (19), Thea Gilmore’s ‘Regardless’ (23), Little Boots’ ‘Nocturnes’ (29), Joe Satriani’s ‘Unstoppable Momentum’ (30) and Armin Van Buuren’s ‘Intense’ (38).
