Forgotten singer/songwriter Sixto Rodriguez's career resurgence continues with an album chart onslaught in Australia.

Three of his albums have entered Australia's Top 30 ahead of his first tour Down Under since the release of Oscar-winning documentary Searching For Sugar Man, which chronicled late filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul's search for the cult 1960s/1970s act, who many fans feared had died.

Rodriguez's debut album Cold Fact is currently at number 11 in Australia, while the Searching for Sugar Man soundtrack is at number 22 and his Coming From Reality album is at 25.

Rodriguez's Australian tour begins in Brisbane on 19 October (14).

Ariana Grande leads the Australian album chart with My Everything, while Taylor Swift's Shake It Off debuts at number one on the country's singles chart.
