August 10, 2016

Contenders include Bernard Fanning, Montaigne, Skillet, DJ Snake and more.

There was no change at the top of the ARIA Charts last week, with Human Nature holding #1 for a second week on the Albums Chart with Gimme Some Lovin': Jukebox Vol. II and Major Lazer taking out #1 on the Singles Chart for a second week with ‘Cold Water’.

Could we see new #1s on this week’s ARIA Charts?

Let’s take a look at some of the week’s contenders.


Following the film’s release, Suicide Squad: The Album could make its chart debut; former Powderfinger leader Bernard Fanning returns with third solo album Civil Dusk; Sydney singer-songwriter Montaigne could pick up her first charts appearance with debut album Glorious Heights; with their tenth album, Unleashed, American band Skillet could make their ARIA top 50 debut; Elvis Presley’s final studio recordings are compiled on the new album Way Down In The Jungle Room; French producer DJ Snake releases debut album Encore; a year on from debuting at #34 with the EP Home, Sydney singer-songwriter Dustin Tebbutt releases debut album First Light; featuring a star-studded track listing, Play School releases the compilation Famous Friends (Celebrating 50 Years); Brisbane-based singer-songwriter Jack Carty  could make his Albums Chart debut with fourth album Home State; Melbourne metalcore group Storm The Sky return with second album Sin Will Find You; Alex Lloyd could hit the top 50 for the first time since 2006 with Acoustica; indie legends Dinosaur Jr. return with eleventh album Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not; American country star Alan Jackson releases the compilation Genuine: The Alan Jackson Story.
