    ARIA Charts: Powderfinger’s Vulture Street celebrates 20 years with a #1

    The 20th-anniversary edition of Vulture Street from legendary Australian band Powderfinger debuts at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart this week.

    Vulture Street was the fifth studio album from Powderfinger and spent three weeks at #1 in 2003, going on to win Album of the Year at the 2003 ARIA Awards. The band has won a total of 18 ARIA Awards between 1999 and 2010, including Best Group in 2001 and 2003. 

    On their success, Powderfinger said: “We are completely honoured and astounded that Vulture Street is back at the top of the pops after all these years. We are so humbled to have received such continued support from everyone at our management, Secret Sounds, our label Universal, but most of all from you, our fans. You are the ones that make it all possible and we want to say how much we love and appreciate your support. We are very, very lucky (ahem) boys. Mil gracias GUAPETONES. Love JC, Hoggy, BF, DZ and Cogs xxxx.”

    In the #2 spot is the debut of Zach Bryan’s self-titled album. It is his fourth studio album, with its predecessor American Heartbreak, peaking at #65. This week it is at #98. 

    It’s been a good week for The Weeknd, with the announcement of his Australian tour in November sending his albums flying back up the chart. His greatest hits package, The Highlights, holds at #3; former #1 album Starboy jumps from #18 to #4; while three of his other #1 albums also climb: After Hours from #27 to #17, Dawn FM from #65 to #25 and Beauty Behind The Madness from #93 to #38.

    In more debut news, Road by Alice Cooper is new at #19. Road is the veteran rockstar’s 29th studio album. He has also released 11 live albums and 21 compilations, with his first release dating back to 1969. Eight of his albums have reached the top 10 here, with the best performers being Lace & Whiskey in 1977 and Detroit Stories in 2021, both of which peaked at #3.

    On the Singles Chart, Doja Cat’s Paint The Town Red holds at #1 for a second week. It samples Dionne Warwick’s 1964 classic Walk On By, which was written by music legends Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
    The Weeknd’s former #3 hit Die For You jumps back into the top 10, up from #18 last week to #10, he also lands #9 with Popular, featuring Playboi Carti and Madonna. Popular is Madonna’s 41st top 10 single here, stretching back to Holiday in 1983. It’s also her first top 10 in 15 years, since 4 Minutes (with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland) got to #1 in 2008. 

    Miley Cyrus returns with Used To Be Young, new at #13, the fourth single from her Endless Summer Vacation album, which hit #1 in March. Its lead single, Flowers, spent 12 weeks at #1 earlier this year.
    Zach Bryan is new at #19 with I Remember Everything, featuring multiple Grammy Award winner Kacey Musgraves. His long-running hit Something In The Orange is at #12 this week in its 59th week on the chart. For Kacey, it is her first charted hit here.
    Selena Gomez also debuts at #26 with Single Soon. She has had six top 10 singles here, with the best performer being Lose You To Love Me, which topped out at #2 in 2019.
