It’s a good day to be Green Day

With the start of her Australian tour less than a month away, Taylor Swift steps back into the #1 spot, as 1989 (Taylor’s Version) racks up its 12th non-consecutive week at the summit of the ARIA Albums Chart.

Green Day arrive at #2 with Saviors: their 14th studio album and first in four years, as well as their first album with producer Rob Cavallo since iTre! in 2012. Saviours marks the rock legends’ 12th top 10 album here, after topping the chart with Dookie in 1994, American Idiot in 2004 and Father Of All Motherfuckers in 2020.

American singer-songwriter Noah Koahan reaches a new peak, with Stick Season rising from #10 to #6. On the Singles Chart, the title track climbs from #3 to #2. A new version of another track from the album, Homesick, featuring English singer Sam Fender, debuts at #57.

Jack Harlow’s Lovin On Me cracks the double digits on the Singles Chart, scoring its 10th non-consecutive week at #1; while Sophie Ellis-Bextor continues to ride the Saltburn wave, as Murder On The Dancefloor jumps from #12 to #7.

It’s the first time in more than two decades that the song has been in the top 10 after it peaked at #3 in 2001. The track featured on Read My Lips, Ellis-Bextor’s only hit album here, which reached #9 in the same year.

TikTok star Benson Boone is new at #18 with Beautiful Things, his highest charting single here. In 2022, he reached #34 with In The Stars.

Dom Dolla hits the top 50 at #44 with Saving Up. The two-time ARIA Award winner also reached #32 last year with Rhyme Dust (with MK).

While Taylor Swift’s former #2 hit Cruel Summer holds at #6, Aussie singer-drummer G-Flip arrives at #96 with their cover of the track, recorded as part of Triple J’s Like A Version series.

The two-time ARIA Award winner’s highest-charting single is Drink Too Much, which peaked at #72 in 2019. They had a #1 album last year with Drummer.
