Ahead of his appearance at The Superbowl, The Weeknd releases compilation The Highlights. Among the 18 tracks are many from the Canadian artist’s three ARIA #1 albums: Beauty Behind The Madness (#1 Sept. ’15), Starboy (#1 Dec. ’16) and After Hours (#1 Mar. ’20).

Sydney singer-songwriter Odette releases her second studio album, Herald. It’s the follow-up to To A Strangers (#13 Jul. ‘18), which received two ARIA Awards nominations.

Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets will be aiming to score their second ARIA Top 50 appearance following the release of Shyga! The Sunlight Mound. It’s the garage rock five-piece’s fourth studio album, coming 18 months on from And Now For The Whatchamacallit (#31 Jun. ’19).

The legendary Kate Ceberano returns with her first solo album in over seven years, Sweet Inspiration. Between Kensal Road (#23 Aug. ’13) and the new release, Ceberano has released collaborations with Steve Kilbey, Paul Grabowsky and more.

Melbourne singer-songwriter Sarah Mary Chadwick releases her seventh solo album Me And Ennui Are Friends, Baby. It’s the third album of a trilogy, released over two years, that also includes The Queen Who Stole The Sky and Please Daddy.
