About Last Night leads the midweek chart, and is set to give Mabel her first leader, besting the No. 3 peak for her 2019 debut LP High Expectations.

The race is far from done, the OCC reports. Coming in at No. 2 on the Official Chart Update is beabadoobee’s own sophomore set Beatopia (Dirty Hit), the best-seller in the first half of the chart week on physical formats.
The Filipino-British singer-songwriter (real name Beatrice Laus) should set a new career best, which until now was a No. 8 with her 2020 debut Fake It Flowers.
In a midweek Top 10 stacked with new releases, veteran U.S. alternative indie-rock outfit Interpol is on track for a fifth U.K. top tier title with The Other Side of Make-Believe (Matador), ready for a No. 4 bow; Yorkshire synth-rock outfit Working Men’s Club could score their first-ever U.K. Top 10 album with Fear Fear (Heavenly), new at No. 6 on the chart blast; while U.S. pop star Lizzo could land at No. 7 with Special (Atlantic), her fourth studio album.
It would take something special to deny Lizzo a new chart best. Until now, that was 2019’s Cuz I Love You, which peaked at No. 30.
Meanwhile, English rock act Black Midi is set for a No. 8 debut with Hellfire (Rough Trade), and Deaf Havana is eying a No. 9 entry with their sixth studio record, The Present Is A Foreign Land (So Recordings).
The Official U.K. Albums Chart is published late Friday.
