Great to see OUT OF SILENCE debut at #2 on the Oz ARIA digital alum chart. Thanks everyone for supporting this release.
#12 on the National chart too- which is pretty good considering the CD version isn't out till the 15th here and LP in October.
Week #2 on ARIA digital chart, sitting at #10. CD is out now in Aust-NZ so we should (in theory) have a jump next week on the national chart too from the Cd sales. Thanks everyone.
CD release in Australia helped this weeks National chart. OUT OF SILENCE is at #9 this week on the ARIA album national chart. Thanks everyone.
Week #4 on the Australian (ARIA) charts -OUT OF SILENCE at #28 in the top 500.
I'm from the other side of the world, and not in the loop, but I Thought Neil / Crowded House stuff would be no 1 in Australia and New Zealand ?
Stuart normally that would be the case but not this one. The Aussie national chart is made up on both digital and cd sales (combined) . Because the digital came out weeks before, it didn't have the cd sales to add to the chart so the national debut was #12 (digital debut #2). Several weeks later when the CD was released, the digital version had been out for a few weeks, so the CD version didn't have the week one digital sales to go with that. Effectively it weakens the chart placing because of the different digital/cd release date. Everything else in the top 10 had the combined cd/digital sales on week one. Still can't complain about being top 10 on both digital and national chart...especially with no tour to add support to sales.
NZ this week- #28 (was #10) I'd say the same situation as above.
Week #5 on the charts for OUT OF SILENCE. Australia- #63, NZ #35.. also UK chart #71.
