At just 23, Delta Goodrem is already one of Australia's most successful and highest-selling female artists. Now Australia's best kept secret is ready to be shared with the rest of the world: her first international album Delta is set for release in July 2008 on Decca.
First - a history lesson. Delta's 2003 debut Innocent Eyes is one of only a handful of albums to sell over a million copies in Australia - one in every 20 Australians own a copy. The album spent a record-breaking 29 weeks at No.1 in Australia, won the Highest Selling Album award at the Australian equivalent of the Grammys two years running and has now clocked up 4 million sales worldwide - including reaching No.2 in the UK.
Each of the album's five singles made No.1 in Australia - breaking a record held by Kylie Minogue and the Beatles - and Innocent Eyes spawned three Top 10 singles in the UK. She's also had hit albums in Japan and New Zealand, charming the globe territory by territory. It's not hard to see why: in an era of pre-fabricated as-seen-on-TV popstars, Delta Goodrem is the real thing.
A pianist since the age of seven, Goodrem harks back to a bygone era where pop stars wrote their own songs and sang them live - as simple as that.
Innocent Eyes established Goodrem as not just a musician but a songwriter. In 2006, Goodrem performed a self-penned song, Together We Are One, at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in front of a worldwide audience of 1.5 billion. The inspirational song surfaced on last year's American Idol. Another song penned by Goodrem, Days Go By, was a No.1 hit this year by Norwegian Idol Glenn Lyse, while she also just collaborated on a song with hero Olivia Newton-John for her new cancer charity. Olivias been a shining light for me, Delta says. Shes guided me, shes continually given me great advice. Another one of Goodrems songs, Eyes on Me, was selected by Celine Dion for her latest album Taking Chances. To hear Eyes on Me sung by a woman Ive looked up to all my life thats an amazing feeling, Goodrem says.
In 2008, Goodrem's first album for the U.S. - simply titled Delta - is her introduction to the American market. Two years in the making, it serves as a welcome antidote to the rushed world of generic pop by creating timeless, global tunes injected with power, passion and personality.
Believe Again opens the proceedings with Delta's most ambitious musical offering yet - a cinematic epic recalling the lush pop of Madonna's Frozen, precisely produced by Marius DeVries (Bjork, Massive Attack, U2) and Stuart Crichton. "Sometimes you write songs and you think `That's fine, that's OK, Delta says. "I didn't want fine. I wanted better than fine. I wanted a great album. I've always had a really good ear for a great song that appeals to a lot of people. I wanted to make sure I had something special. Believe Again was the one that turned the corner, it inspired the whole album."
First single In This Life, (produced by John Shanks) became Delta's 8th No.1 hit in Australia (out of an impressive 13 singles released to date), effortlessly seducing radio with its life-affirming chorus and wall-to-wall melodic rush. It has that light and shade, Delta says of track. The sentiment in songs is so important to me. Its got the melody that rings in your ear because its catchy and you can sing along with it, but I can also belt it out. Its got all the elements I could hope to be introduced with.
Goodrem wrote many of her songs shortly after winning her battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a cancer that derailed Delta at the height of her Australian and UK success in 2003. Just as music has always been there for the good times in her life, it was there at the hardest moments too.
"My life had got so serious so fast," Delta says. "Then I lost my hair, it went green, I had braces, I was on steroids and in chemotherapy - I thought about how when there's absolutely nothing else, you'
