Published on:

Kings of Leon are all set to claim the U.K. chart throne with Can We Please Have Fun, the U.S. rock band’s ninth studio album.

Based on midweek sales and streaming data captured by the Official Charts Company, Can We Please Have Fun (via Polydor) is in pole position.

Should it reign over the Official U.K. Chart, it would mark the seventh U.K. No. 1 for KoL, comprising brothers Caleb, Nathan, and Jared Followill and cousin Matthew Followill.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift’s former leader The Tortured Poets Department (EMI) holds at No. 2 on the Official Chart Update, while British pop-rock band Keane could complete the podium with Hopes and Fears (Island/UMR), their debut album which enjoys a resurgence following the release of a 20th anniversary deluxe reissue. The 2004 LP enjoyed five non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 following its release, and is predicted to return to the national chart at No. 3.
