Meanwhile, Within Temptation are set to debut one place behind them today with their sixth album, Hydra. Should the Dutch symphonic metallers maintain their momentum though to Saturday night’s final whistle, it will be their highest charting UK album to date.
Avicii slides one place to Number 3 with True, while today’s Top 5 is completed by Ellie Goulding’s Halcyon (4) and Beyonce’s self-titled album (5).
