Aussie singer and songwriter Conrad Sewell enjoys the best possible start on Australia's albums chart as his debut LP Life (Sony) starts at the summit. Meanwhile, Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" (Columbia/Sony) returns to the top of the national singles survey as Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber's "I Don’t Care" (Universal/Warner) dips 2-1.
Sewell's Life includes the chart-topping, ARIA Award-winning single "Start Again" from June 2015, and "Healing Hands," which peaked at No. 7 on the ARIA Singles Chart in July 2018. It's not his first stint on the ARIA Albums Chart. Sewell, who is best known to international audiences for lending his vocals on Kygo's single "Firestone," saw his EP All I Know reach No. 9 back in November 2015.
Elsewhere on this week's chart, Billie Eilish's platinum-certified When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Interscope/Universal) holds at No. 2 and U.S. rapper Tyler, The Creator enjoys a new albums chart peak with Igor (Columbia/Sony), new at No. 3. Igor eclipses Tyler's previous best, a No. 8 for Flower Boy from July 2017, and it spawns four top 50 tracks on this week’s singles chart, including the No. 11-ranked "Earfquake," the highest new entry on the current frame.
