Paul McCartney and Elton John Sales Continue To Dive In Australia

Sales of Paul McCartney ‘New’ and Elton John ‘The Diving Board’ continued to defy chart gravity in Australia this week with McCartney leaving the top 30 after one week on the chart and Elton the Top 400 after 6 weeks.

‘New’ dropped to no. 38 on the Australian chart this week with 815 sales and a grand total since release of just over 2000. ‘The Diving Board’ dropped to no. 452 worth 136 sales and around 2500 sales in total after 6 weeks.

Both albums have been successes in the USA and UK but Australian audiences have failed to accept the new releases from these two legendary artists despite them both delivering their best work in years.

For Elton, ‘The Diving Board’ was recorded with the basic sounds of just piano, bass and drums, like his early 70s albums. Producer T. Bone Burnett captured the sounds that Elton fans remember from the ‘Your Song’ days.

McCartney used Giles Martin, Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth and Ethan Johns to remind fans of the sounds created by Giles father George on the Beatle records.

After 2 weeks, McCartney’s ‘New’ is at 12 in the USA and 14 in the UK, Elton’s ‘The Diving Board’ is currently at 27 in the USA and 86 in the UK.
