Jake Bugg looks set to hit the top spot on the Official Album Chart this Sunday.
The Nottingham newcomer, who is currently touring with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, looks set to keep Leona Lewis’ ‘Glassheart’ from the Number One slot. His self-titled debut is currently at the top of the midweeks, leading by over 4,000 copies thanks to the massive radio play of his latest single ‘Two Fingers’ and endorsements from the likes of Lily Allen, Elton John and Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
The singer-songwriter is also beating off competition from current chat-toppers Mumford & Sons, whose hugely successful second album ‘Babel’ has slipped to Number Three, and Bat For Lashes’ ‘The Haunted Man’.
Meanwhile, in the midweek Official Singles Chart, Calvin Harris and Florence Welch are well on their way to their second Number One with ‘Sweet Nothing’, less than three months after the success of the DJ’s remix of her track ‘Spectrum’.
Swedish House Mafia slid one place to Number Two with ‘Don’t You Worry Child’, while K-pop superstar Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ is holding at Number Three.
