Shed Seven Eyes First U.K. No. 1 With ‘A Matter of Time’

Thirty years into their career, Shed Seven are on track for a first-ever U.K. No. 1.

The Britpop era indie band leads the midweek U.K. chart with A Matter of Time (via Cooking Vinyl), the York five-piece’s sixth studio effort.

Whatever between now and the publication of the weekly chart, A Matter of Time should give Shed Seven a fifth top 10, following 1996’s A Maximum High (No. 8), 1998’s Let It Ride (No. 9), 1999’s career retrospective Going for Gold (No. 7) and 2017’s Instant Pleasures (No. 8), their most recent studio LP.

Lewis Capaldi’s Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent (EMI) is set to lose its crown after a third non-consecutive weeks at No. 1. The Scottish singer and songwriter’s sophomore album returned to the summit last week following the surprise release of a special edition, though it’s forecast to dip 2-1.

Coming in at No. 3 on the Official Chart Update is pop-punk band Busted’s former leader Greatest Hits 2.0 (Busted Live), which is predicted to reenter following the release of an extended “Another Present for Everyone” edition, which includes the fresh cut “One of These Days.”

Dublin, Ireland-formed garage-punk act SPRINTS is on track for a top 10 spot with Letter to Self (City Slang), their debut LP. It’s new at No. 4 on the chart blast.

Finally, U.S. artist Teddy Swims’ debut major label LP I’ve Tried Everything But Therapy (Part 1) (via Warner Records) is resurgent and is expected to crack the top 10. Released in September 2023, I’ve Tried Everything But Therapy (Part 1) is expected to vault to No. 8 as Swims’ breakthrough single “Lose Control” fixes its sights on a U.K. top 10 chart position for the first time.

All will be revealed when the Official U.K. Albums Chart is published late Friday, Jan. 12.
