It’s a microcosm of the ARIA charts’ last few months, with One Direction at number one and Adele at number two.

Jack White holds well at three, Ed Sheeran keeps ploughing on at number four, and we have our first new entry of the week at number five – Norah JonesLittle Broken Hearts.

It’s heartening to see Santigold’s adventurous new album Master Of My Make Believe debut at number 16. Then we have Jack Vidgen’s second album of covers – Inspire – at number 23. Pennywise’s long-awaited new album All Or Nothing dropped in at 27. B.o.B.’s Strange Clouds hit number 32. The Avengers soundtrack debuted at 37. And a new ‘ultimate’ Bee Gees compilation snuck in at 49.

Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee popped up from 24 to 14, Sri Lankan-born singer and producer Alston gets a big boost back into the charts at number 21, and Michael Crawford’s The Story Of My Life climbs back to 29.

Gotye slowly slips back down the chart from 17 to 30, as does Birdy in her second week, slumping from 29 to 48.

We have a new number one single from Flo Rida ‘Whistle’ – after a solid run from Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ (which will probably go back up next week after a promo tour).

The Voice is starting to affect the Singles Chart, with Lakyn Heperis version of ‘Big Jet Plane’ debuting at 18, Angus & Julia Stone’s original re-entering at 27, Fatai Veamatahau’s version of Rihanna’s ‘Love The Way You Lie’ in at 32 and Rachael Leahcar’s ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ sneaking up to 47.
