The Beatles could be back at No1 in the album charts with Abbey Road – 50 years after it was released

  • The Beatles Abbey Road album is expected to top the album charts 50 years on 
  • The album cover shows the group crossing the road outside their London studio
  • Beatles fans flocked to the road in August, 50 years from when photo was taken

The Beatles are about to get back to where they once belonged – at the top of the album charts.

Their classic LP Abbey Road, which was released on September 26, 1969 and was No 1 around the world, is on course to repeat that feat in the UK 50 years on.

The album, which features Here Comes The Sun and Come Together, has stolen a lead of 12,000 sales over last week’s chart-topper Liam Gallagher’s Why Me? Why Not.

Abbey Road’s cover, showing John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison on the zebra crossing outside their London recording studio, is one of the most widely recognised in music history. 

In August fans of the Liverpool group flocked to the crossing to mark five decades since the iconic photo was taken.

The Official Charts Company said Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi’s former No 1 album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent currently stands at No 3.

South London collective D-Block Europe are set for the highest new entry with PTSD at No 4. The final chart will be revealed later this week.
