US alt.rocker Jack White's highly anticipated solo debut has entered the Australian charts at number two, unable to dislodge boyband-of-the-year One Direction from the top spot.

However, White's Blunderbuss album did manage to nudge One Direction's Up All Night from the top of the ARIA Digital Album Chart.

Damien Leith's Traveling Wilburys tribute album Now And Then was the next highest entry for the week, the highest local debut.

Melbourne band Children Collide made the next highest showing in the local stakes, their Monument set entering at 16. Their previous album Theory Of Everything peaked at number five in 2010.

Rounding out the week's new entries were Birdy's self-titled debut at 29 and Rufus Wainwright's Out Of The Game at 38.

Last week's One Direction victim Kate Miller-Heidke experienced only a slight drop to five from last week's debut position of two with Nightflight. While Cold Chisel, who suffered at the boy band's hands the week before, find their No Plans set dipping to eight.
