This week's album chartifacts

#1: ABBA ‘Voyage’ – Music legends ABBA take out their first #1 in Australia in nearly 30 years as they return with 'Voyage'. The quartet’s first studio album since 1981’s 'The Visitors' features ten tracks written by ABBA's songwriters, Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and includes the singles ‘Don't Shut Me Down’ (#27 September ’21) and ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ (#39 September ’21). It’s the second ABBA album to top the ARIA Charts after the compilation 'ABBA Gold' spent four straight weeks at #1 in December 1992. 'Voyage' will be supported by a concert residency, also called 'ABBA Voyage', that will take place in London beginning on 27 May 2022 and will feature the digital avatars of the group.
#3: Radiohead ‘Kid A Mnesia’ – Marking two decades of 'Kid A' (#2 October ‘00) and 'Amnesiac' (#2 June ‘01), Radiohead hit this week’s chart with the reissue package 'Kid A Mnesia'. As well as the two original albums, the set includes a third disc comprising previously unreleased material from the recording sessions of both albums. The reissue of the band’s previous album, 'OK Computer: OKNOTOK 1997-2017', peaked at #6 in July 2017. 'Kid A Mnesia' is #1 on this week’s ARIA Vinyl Albums Chart.
