Now that's what you call a comeback...

Sir Cliff Richard is on course to score his highest-charting album for 25 years with his new release Rise Up.

The new album is currently sitting at number two in the midweek album chart, according to Official Charts Company.

Rise Up is Cliff's first album of new material since 2004's Something's Going On.

The last time he achieved an album higher than number three was 1994's compilation The Hit List.

Ahead of him is Take That's new album Odyssey, while he is higher than new albums from Alfie Boe, Rita Ora and a Roy Orbison compilation.

Sir Cliff recently revealed that he turned down the chance to meet Elvis Presley in the 1970s, and regretted the decision ever since.
