Only in 2022 would an album of bird sounds jump ahead Taylor Swift on a top 50 chart. How long it will stay there? Not long, but it’s a good headline that will give ‘eyes’ on the album and deserving so.

The album titled Songs Of Disappearance chronicles the calls from endangered Australian birds and reached the Top Five ARIA album charts, selling more than 3,000 copies. It briefly reached No. 3 on the country’s top 50 albums chart.

Anthony Albrecht helmed the album with his arts organization, the Bowerbird Collective. He’s a musician and a Ph.D. candidate at Charles Darwin University.

“It’s absolutely incredible to have knocked Michael Buble, Mariah Carey and a whole bunch of other really famous artists out of the [top five],” he said.

“In some ways, it’s not surprising, because I believe Australians generally are so much more attuned now to the environmental crisis that we’re all facing — and that the unique and incredible species that also call Australia home are facing.”

Adele was the music industry’s big 4th quarter story. She delivered a great album even though “30” only sold 1.4 million copies since its release. Her previous album, “25,” sold 3.8 million in its first week. We are in a different landscape and the new album can’t compete in a 2015 era, that’s except if you’re Morgan Wallen.

Adele’s Vegas show is a big ticket. The pre-sale tickets ranging from $85 To $685 are now being resold with prices ranging from over $1,000 to more than $37,000.

The big winner is Morgan Wallen. The country rising star earned a #1 album in 2021 that sold over 3 million copies. The country boy was cancelled and dropped from awards shows and his agents and managers pretended to drop him but they couldn’t completely distance themselves and walk away from the cash cow. His fans love him and Morgan is sticking around.
