First ever ARIA Album Chart No.1 for ABC Music!

 

In a massive coup, triple j’s Like A Version Nine debuted this week and landed the ARIA Album Chart top spot. This is a first for ABC Music, who has enjoyed multiple-ARIA Compilations Album Chart Number 1’s with various triple j Hottest 100 volumes, however, never a mainstream album chart No.1. Previously, the highest charting Like A Version release was the Sixth instalment, which reached 2nd position on the ARIA Album Chart back in November 1, 2010.

This chart-topping position is testament to the artists involved and the incredibly diverse and often thought-provoking covers they put together for the triple j Breakfast program with Tom & Alex each Friday morning.

Like A Version Nine includes San Cisco covering Daft Punk, Tame Impala covering Outkast, Vance Joy covering Adele and Haim covering Sheryl Crow to name a few.
