Keith Urban bumps Adele out of the number one slot with his new hits collection, The Story So Far.

The Voice has been a boon for the hosts, with Seal’s Hits sitting at number four (and Soul 2 peeking back into the chart at 50) and Delta Goodrem’s ‘Sitting On Top Of The World’ at number ten on the singles chart.

Garbage’s first album in seven years – Not Your Kind Of People – debuted at eight, John Butler and Ash Grunwald go back-to-back at 28 and 29 with Tin Shed Tales and Trouble’s Door respectively, Beach House’s Bloom pops in at 40, and Keane’s Strangeland scrapes in at 49.

Following his much-hyped tour, Prince’s hits collection shot from 28 to five, the expanded version of Kimbra’s Vows bumps it up to 23 from 32, and The Shins’ tour gets Port Of Morrow back in the chart at 41.

Flo Rida and Carly Rae Jepsen keep battling it out on the Singles Chart, with ‘Whistle’ holding the top spot.

But The Voice is good business on the Singles Chart as well, with debuts from Karise Eden at number nine, Rachael Leahcar at fifteen, Viktoria Bolonina at 28, Emma-Louise Birdsall at 36, and Fatai Veamatahau at 43.
