Every day, Australia enjoys the sunrise before most other countries. There’s a new dawn for the country’s official music charts, too, which are moving forward one day for a Friday publication.
Starting From this Friday (March 19) the weekly ARIA charts will be published at 5pm, a full 24 hours earlier than usual. With the shift, Australia will be the first major market weekly charts available anywhere.
“We hope this will provide more opportunities to promote the Australian market and local artists,” says a rep for ARIA, which compiles the charts.
