Perth band Pond return with their aptly-titled ninth studio album, 9. The follow-up to Tasmania (#15 Mar. ‘19) includes the singles ‘Pink Lunettes’, ‘America’s Cup’ and ‘Toast’. It’s their first self-produced album in over a decade.

Five years after their ARIA Award-nominated debut, Diplomatic Immunity, Melbourne duo Client Liaison release their second album, Divine Intervention. The new release sees the pair collaborating with producers Dann Hume and Nick Littlemore, among others. Divine Intervention features the singles ‘The Real Thing’, ‘House Of Holy’ and ‘Elevator Up’.

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett reunite for Love For Sale. The second collaborative album from the pair comes seven years on from Cheek To Cheek (#7 Sept. ‘14) and is a tribute to the work of American composer Cole Porter. It’s veteran crooner Bennett’s 61st studio album.

American alt-country singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile releases In These Silent Days, her seventh studio album. Carlile’s previous album, 2019’s By the Way, I Forgive You, was nominated for Album Of The Year at the 61st Grammys.

After making his Top 50 debut last year with Edna (#22 Oct. ‘20), British rapper Headie One releases the mixtape Too Loyal... For My Own Good. One single, ‘2 Chains’, has already been released.
