Country VS EDM In Next Week’s Album Chart

Can Aussie Keith hold off Swedish EDM?

The top 20 of the ARIA Albums Chart is set to experience a sizeable upheaval next week, with a number of strong debuts pushing into the top positions.

According to midweek figures country star Keith Urban's Fuse, EDM giant Avicii's True and roots veteran Jack Johnson's Loud Like Love are looking good for top ten debuts – with top three positions well in sight.

Last week four albums (Arctic Monkeys, London Grammar, Tonight Alive and Violent Soho) debuted in the top six and we can expect a similar rough and tumble this week.

There's also releases in the form of The Naked And Famous' In Rolling Waves and Elton John's The Diving Board which will be pushing top ten entries.

Other debuts will come from The Weeknd's Kiss Land, Mantra's Telling Scenes and MGMT's MGMT, Elvis Costello & The Roots' Wise Up Ghost, The 1975's The 1975, Mr Grevis' My Escape and Carcass' Surgical Steel, which the figures indicate will be scattered through the top 50 in roughly that order.

A dark horse mover is Rudimental's Home, which is not only boosted by their current tour but their announcement on the Future Music Festival line-up. Once again in the country for the announcement, the band read out the line-up live on radio before performing last night. One Direction's Up All Night is also posting a jump.

Lorde is set to be the top debut in this week's ARIA Singles Chart, with Katy Perry's Roar mounting a strong challenge to reclaim the number one spot. It was only slight behind last week's number one – Redfoo's Let's Get Ridiculous – and well ahead of number three – Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball – in the most recent chart.

Midweek figures are indicating that other strong movers include Ellie Goulding's Burn and Passenger's Let Her Go, while we can expect debuts from X-Factor contestant Dami Im's Roar, Future Music Festival headliners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Schoolboy Q and Hollis' White Walls.
