John Butler Trio's 'Home' Arrives at No. 1 in Australia


John Butler Trio’s Home (Jarrah/MGM) checks-in at No. 1 on Australia’s albums chart whereas George Ezra blasts away for a 3rd week atop the singles survey with “Shotgun” (Columbia/Sony).

Home is JBT’s seventh studio set and their fourth No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, following April Uprising (2010), Grand National (2007) and Sunrise Over Sea (2004). 

“I can’t specific how grateful I’m to the Australian neighborhood of followers that went out and made this album primary,” stated band chief John Butler in an announcement after his newest chart title. “With so many large artists releasing in the intervening time I actually didn’t suppose we had an opportunity. I’m simply completely awe-struck by the love this album is getting and the ever-strengthening relationship I’ve with my viewers after virtually 20 years."

The ARIA Award-winning roots-rock outfit holds off fast-starting debuts from Cher (Dancing Queen Warner) and The Living End (Wunderbar BMG/Warner), which open at Nos. 2 and three, respectively on the newest chart body, whereas Eminem’s former chief Kamikaze (down 1-Four, Interscope/Universal) and The Best Of Cold Chisel: All For You (up 46-5 Cold Chisel/Universal), full the highest 5. The double-platinum licensed (140,000 models) Cold Chisel retrospective set enjoys a scorching burst of exercise following the business TV premiere of a documentary final week on its iconic frontman, Jimmy Barnes, whose personal solo album, Working Class Boy – The Soundtracks (Bloodlines/Universal), returns to the highest 20 after a five-week absence. Barnes’ Working Class Boy re-enters at No. 11.

With his long-awaited new album Tha Carter V (Republic/Universal), Lil Wayne opens at No. 6 for a profession chart peak Down Under, eclipsing the No. 9 better of The Carter IV, from September 2011. Tha Carter V opens at No. 1 within the United States with the second-best-ever streaming week by an album. 

Also this week, U.S. rapper Logic grabs a career-best No. eight together with his fourth and newest album, YSIV (Def Jam/Universal), whereas Rod Stewart’s Blood Red Roses (Decca/Universal) begins its chart journey at No. 15. The veteran British singer and songwriter’s 30th solo set is new at No. 1 within the U.Ok. 

On the ARIA Singles Chart, George Ezra fires away for a 3rd successive crown with “Shotgun” whereas Canadian home act Loud Luxury strikes 14-10 with "Body" (Universal) for his or her first-ever prime 10 look in Australia.
