Paloma Faith has the lead over Morrissey and Tokio Myers on this week's Official Chart Update

13 new entries impact the midweek Top 40, including albums from Jeff Lynne's ELO, Leading Ladies and Sia.

Paloma Faith's new album The Architect is building quite the following in its first week on sale, and could become her first chart-topping record this Friday.

Today's Official Albums Chart Update sees Paloma at Number 1 with her fourth studio album, which was proceeded by the lead single Crybaby, which hit the UK Top 40 in September.

The Architect has a lead of 4,000 combined chart sales and leads an all-new Top 3. Morrissey's eleventh solo studio album Low in High School is at Number 2 in today's sales flash, ahead of Our Generation, the debut album from Britain's Got Talent winner Tokio Myers (3).
