James could get their first number one album in 18 years

The band are on course for number one in the midweek charts

James could be scoring their first number one album in almost two decades this week.

Their 14th album ‘Girl At The End Of The World’ is currently just under 2,000 combined sales behind main competitor Adele’s ’25’. If sales continue, they could beat Adele off the top spot.

Their last and only other number one album was back in 1998, with ‘The Best Of – James’.


In singles chart news, Sigala’s ‘Say You Do’ takes an early lead on this week’s chart by just 568 combined sales.

The DJ Fresh and Imani collaboration leaps 45 places following its download release and is currently just ahead of Posner’s ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’.

If Sigala holds on to his position, it will mark his second chart-topper after his debut single ‘Easy Love’ reached number one last September.

Last week, Mike Posner and Lukas Graham had the closest race to number one since summer 2007, when Timbaland and Keri Hilson’s ‘The Way I Are’ beat Kate Nash’s ‘Foundations’ to Number one by a mere 16 copies.
