Beck is heading for his first ever Number One on the Official Albums Chart with new album, ‘Morning Phase’.

Official Chart Company data reveals that the US singer-songwriter’s latest album is currently ahead of Bastille’s ‘Bad Blood’ at No.2.

Beck has had six Top 40 albums in the UK – including a Top 10 with 2008’s Modern Guilt (9) – but has never managed to score a Number One before. The final chart will be revealed on BBC Radio 1 this Sunday.

There are four other new entries on this week’s Official Albums Chart Update with Wild Beasts new at No.8 today (February 26) with their fourth album ‘Present Tense’. Reverend And The Makers are new at nine with their new album ‘ThirtyTwo’ while St Vincent is on course for a UK Top 20 entry with her self-titled album at 12.
