Twenty One Pilots could claim their first-ever Official Number 1 album with Clancy this week. 

The Ohio-formed duo, comprising Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, take an early lead with their seventh studio LP, having previously enjoyed Top 40 success with 2013’s Vessel (39), 2015 release Blurryface (5), 2018’s Trench (2) and 2021 record Scaled and Icy (3). 

Hot on the pair’s heels is Paul Weller, whose 17th studio collection 66 looks set to become his 23rd solo Top 10 album (2). Former The Jam and The Style Council frontman Weller has previously secured six solo Number 1 albums: 1995’s Stanley Road, 2002 record Illumination, 2008’s 22 Dreams, 2012’s Sonik Kicks, 2020’s On Sunset and 2021’s Fat Pop. Could he catch up to claim a seventh this week?
