triple j LIKE A VERSION 10 claims #1 ARIA Chart debut
triple j’s LIKE A VERSION 10 claims the ARIA Album Chart No.1 position on debut this week, following on from the success of last year’s Like A Version Nine which also topped the chart on release.
LIKE A VERSION 10 becomes ABC Music’s second mainstream chart-topper. The label, which has enjoyed multiple-ARIA Compilations Album Chart Number 1’s with various triple j Hottest 100 volumes, made ARIA Chart history in 2013 when they achieved their first ever mainstream No.1 in 2013 with the ninth instalment of the hugely popular Like A Version releases.
triple j Breakfast host Alex Dyson had this to say; “When Matt and I sing, people tend to cover their ears. When we get awesome artists live in the studio, they tend to cover their favourite songs. We’re honoured to have Like A Version 10 make it to #1 as it shows people love listening to talented people playing live music as much as we do.”
LIKE A VERSION 10 features all your best-loved triple j artists covering acoustic versions of their favourite songs – often thought-provoking, always entertaining, and all recorded live on triple j Breakfast. This year’s collection features performances by Ásgeir covering Milky Chance, Briggs (feat. Gurrumul) with their version of ‘The Children Came Back’, Lorde’s take on James Blake’s ‘Retrograde’ and versions from Alex Turner, Karnivool, Chet Faker, Dan Sultan, John Butler Trio and more all captured on CD/DVD.
