Multi-platinum selling superstar, Delta Goodrem is back and at her strongest as she shares her empowering new single ‘Solid Gold’, out today via Sony Music.

Drawing upon rich nostalgic tones similar to Fleetwood Mac, ‘Solid Gold’ instantly ignites a sense of joy through live instruments and a swirling harmonic chorus, making it impossible not to feel good. “At the very core,” explains Delta, “‘Solid Gold’ is an uplifting and empowering message reminding someone who has taken you for granted of your worth and strength; “I’m gonna take your bad heart” and remind them “what you had was always solid gold”.”
Last month, Delta also released a video sharing an honest recount of the meaning behind her previous single, ‘Paralyzed’. With messages of support flooding in from fans around the world, Delta revealed her personal health journey of which her sixth studio album was born, a body of work she calls “incredibly personal, rawand honest”.
Having signed her first recording contract at the early age of 15 years old, scoring a major TV role at 17 and selling over eight million albums worldwide, the work that has been put into Delta’s sixth studio album has been an opportunity to show a more candid, mature side and at the very core, Delta speaking her truth. This new era of music sees her tell stories of coming into her own as a woman and moments she never thought she would share, with people already responding to her transparency and vulnerability.
Whilst 2020 has seen the world go through unprecedented times, for Delta Goodrem it’s been a year that has seen her release incredibly powerful pieces of music and connect with fans like only she can do. In April, Global Citizen together with Lady Gaga reached out and invited Delta to perform as part of the online One World: Together At Home festival. In January, Delta was inspired to write ‘Let It Rain’ after seeing the devastation from the bushfires across Australia. She teamed up with Apple Music, Sony Music, and iHeart radio for the release, with all proceeds going to aid with Red Cross bushfire relief. Connecting with fans from all over the world, Delta also launched The Bunkerdown Sessions via her social media platforms 23 weeks ago, performing live deep cuts from her extensive catalogue and surprise performances of new material.
She also launched Delta Goodrem Foundation, which strives to spread kindness, hope and support for those facing illness, hardship and inequality, as well as funding medical research in cellular therapy for blood cancers and auto-immune disease. Delta also returned this year as the longest serving Coach on The Voice Australia, and celebrated 150 episodes in June.
