Mistaken Identity [22 Nov 2004|10:00pm]

[ mood | jubilant ]

Delta Goodrem's new album Mistaken Identity is out today!
Also released today is Kylie Minogue's greatest hits.
But there's no need to get that CD of old songs when you can get Delta's album of fantastic new tracks.

Mistaken IdentityHaving confirmed her place in history as one Australia's most successful and popular singer/songwriters, Delta Goodrem returns with her second studio album 'Mistaken Identity' - the highly-anticipated follow-up to her 14 x Platinum 2003 debut 'Innocent Eyes', which found its way into over a million homes, and hearts, around the nation.

'Mistaken Identity' is available in both a standard version and a beautifuly presented limited edition CD/DVD package that includes the video for 'Out Of The Blue', plus behind the scenes footage for the video shoot, footage from Delta's recent European promotional tour, behind the scenes footage of the making of 'Mistaken Identity' and Delta's own track by track rundown of the songs on the album.

Deeper and more intense than her debut, 'Mistaken Identity' is the emotional and inspirational multi-layered product of the past 12 months of Delta life. Every note, every lyric and emotion has been placed on the album precisely that way for a reason: plenty of outsiders have told their side of Delta's story - this is hers.

"It's a more grown up album," Delta says. "My music changed because my life had changed; the whole world around me had changed. My music had to reflect that."

The first single to be released from the album, 'Out Of The Blue', debuted at #1 on the Australian charts and instantly became the most added and most played song on Australian radio. The gorgeous and uplifting song is just one of several key tracks on the album co-written by Delta and Guy Chambers - the British songwriter/producer whose CV includes co-writes on most of Robbie Williams' hits.

In addition to Chambers, other songwriters Delta co-wrote with include Billy Mann on Mistaken Identity and Last Night On Earth, Cathy Dennis (who co-wrote Innocent Eyes' Throw It Away) on Sanctuary, Matthew Gerard (who wrote Delta's second #1 Lost Without You) on the emotional Be Strong, Gary Barlow and Elliot Kennedy (who co-wrote Not Me Not I) and Delta's close friend Vince Pizzinga (co-author of Innocent Eyes) on Extraordinary Day.

The album also includes her eagerly-anticipated first duet, (Only) Almost Here, with former Westlife singer Brian McFadden.

Overall, 'Mistaken Identity' is the ultimate statement on the highs - and lows - of the last two years of Delta Goodrem's life. Get ready to listen, learn and fall in love with Delta all over again.

Track Listing
1. Out Of The Blue
2. The Analyst
3. Mistaken Identity
4. Extraordinary Day
5. A Little Too Late
6. Be Strong
7. Electric Storm
8. Almost Here (Duet With Brian McFadden)
9. Miscommunication
10. Sanctuary
11. Last Night On Earth
12. Fragile
13. Disorientated
14. You Are My Rock

Apparently, there's also a hidden track on this album.
It comes about a minute after You Are My Rock and it has Delta screaming and stuff.
I am.
Buy it now.
It would make a great Christmas present.
Delta's also going to be on Neighbours today.
She'll be there until the end of the week.

A Whole Year [11 Jul 2004|05:00pm]

[ mood | nostalgic ]

A Year Ago Today, Delta Goodrem shocked the world.
This was the day when it was announced that she had cancer.
Here's a little about it:

Delta Goodrem's family today announced that Delta Goodrem has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease, a treatable form of cancer.

Delta's family were told of the diagnosis following a series of tests last week. Delta is currently undergoing treatment in a Sydney Hospital.

In a written statement Delta said:

"I want to assure all my fans that I will be fine and I will be back just as soon as my treatment is completed. Knowing that I have your love and support is making a huge difference and I look forward to seeing you all very soon."

According to the treating St Vincent's Hospital Haematologist "Preliminary investigation indicates Hodgkins Lymphoma disease. Further testing is still under way, but at this stage given the early detection, the outlook in such instances would be positive".

As part of her extended family, Delta's friends at Sony Music, her manager Glenn Wheatley, the cast and crew of Neighbours, Network Ten and Grundy Television all send Delta and her family much love and support during this period. Delta's family are very grateful to have such a large extended family during this time.

Delta's family have appealed for everyone to respect her privacy during the treatment period. Delta said her fans would be kept up to date on her progress through her website.

Can you believe it's been a whole year?
It seems like such a short time.
Delta said that she would be positive and fight it.
That's exactly what she did.
Now, she's back and stronger than ever.
She won 7 ARIA awards, nominated for the Gold and Silver Logies and won the Breakthrough Artist award at the APRA awards.
She's also filmed her final scenes of Neighbours as well as Hating Alison Ashley, and who could forget her appearance on the Australia Tourism advert.
Delta's gathered her strength to come to the UK and support Mark Philippoussis at Wimbledon, too.
We know that she was Born To Try and will always be.

Delta Delta Delta [30 May 2004|02:44pm]

HI there everybody.

I just joined and I wanted to say how great Delta is. Im sure you all know this already though, but it doesnt hurt to say it again. My favourite Delta song has got to be Born to Try, but all her songs are the best and it is so hard to choose.

I was also wondering if other people from the UK have seen the advert for Australia tourism featuring Delta singing over the top? She sings 'I can see a rainbow', it is beautiful, and very Deltary. I dont know if it is in any other countries yet, but it would be nice to hear.

APRA Awards [01 Jun 2004|05:00pm]

[ mood | content ]

Here's a small snippet that I found about this years APRA Awards:

As a fitting tribute to her phenomenal success DELTA GOODREM has been honoured with the APRA BREAKTHROUGH AWARD, which recognises the talents of an emerging composer. The award recognises the composer's achievements in the past year in terms of public awareness, commercial success and critical acclaim. Delta who is currently in Europe accepted her award via a taped speech. "I'm so honoured to be recognised for my song writing as it is a huge part of me and music is a wonderful way to express yourself. Keep the songs coming cos it's wonderful to support Australian songwriters and their music."

She deserved to win that award as well.

Delta Didn't Win [23 Apr 2004|05:00pm]

[ mood | okay ]

Here's something I found about this year's Logie Awards in Australia:

The Logie Awards this year were destined to be big and they didn't disappoint. In its 46th year, the event was held inside the stunning Crown Casino in Melbourne - the crowds went wild and despite not winning any major awards, Neighbours' singing sensation Delta Goodrem absolutely stole the show.

Before the awards, there are the red carpet arrivals - such a big event that it gets its own hour-long show. To be there is absolutely magic. The atmosphere is electric as fans wait patiently and excitedly for their favourite stars to appear in front of them to chat, take photos and sign autograph books, shirts and even mobile phones.

Courtesy of Maybelline, two Neighbours stars were made over especially for the event. Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Izzy) and Jacinta Stapleton (ex-Neighbours' Amy), who both looked gorgeous already, underwent a stunning transformation. Jacinta had deep, moody eyes, shimmering lips, slicked back hair and a long flowing red backless dress. Natalie had a fabulous backless green dress (with tape in all the right places!) and was draped in beautifully expensive jewellery.

The Neighbours stars' arrivals were staggered and the girls and guys of the show all looked absolutely beautiful in some outstanding outfits - perhaps with an eye towards winning the publicly voted Best Dressed award. They were all very happy to meet their adoring fans and spend some time with them, despite the tight schedule and ever present security. Kyal Marsh (Boyd), Carla Bonner (Steph), Alan Fletcher (Karl), Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Izzy), Kym Valentine (Libby), Patrick Harvey (Connor), Jay Bunyan (Jack), Stephanie McIntosh (Sky), Lara Sacher (Serena) and Janet Andrewartha (Lyn) were all very friendly, going over and above the call of duty to take time to make sure they got around to as many of the fans as possible.

Then, finally, came Delta. Her entrance was like nothing else. The TV coverage missed out on the amazing moment when she appeared in front of the crowds on the red carpet and the room erupted with screams, chanting and absolute insanity. With boyfriend Mark Philippoussis, Delta cut an amazing entrance dressed in a stunning, black, off the shoulder dress and sporting dark hair with curls - a look that, later in the evening, won her the Best Dressed gong. Beauty just shone out of her and despite the surrounding craziness, she took the time to talk to every fan that she could as if they were having a one-to-one chat over coffee.

Now onto the awards. There were shocks all round when Lisa Chappell picked up the Most Popular Actress award, pipping Delta Goodrem to the post and planting probably the first seed of doubt that Delta may not win Gold. In tears, Lisa herself looked surprised and a little overwhelmed. Neighbours missed out on Most Popular Australian Drama and Most Popular Australian Programme to McLeod's Daughters, but that wasn't a big surprise. Later, Stephanie McIntosh missed out on the Most Popular New Female Talent to Isabel Lucas from Home & Away - who gave an emotional acceptance speech, watched adoringly by her fellow cast including Kate Ritchie.

Pop legend Anastacia was the special guest of the night and she spoke fondly of her 'angel' Delta, or 'D' as she called her, as she spoke frankly about cancer and their own brave fights against it. Earlier, while meeting fans, she said she couldn't wait to meet Delta and 'give her a squeeze'. Delta presented the Silver Logie awards and told the audience she was glad to be back and is working on her new album while also playing the lead role in the upcoming kids flick, Hating Alison Ashley.

The most eagerly anticipated moment of the evening was the announcement of the Gold Logie winner. Delta was up against tough competition from Lisa Chappell, Rove McManus, Georgie Parker and John Wood. Most people thought it was in the bag for Delta who, since winning the Most Popular New Female Talent award last year, had continued to enjoy a highly successful music career despite being forced to temporarily retire from the scene to focus on her fight against cancer. However, in another surprise result, Delta lost out to last year's winner, Rove. The reception Delta received showed that even without the award, she had clearly captured the hearts of the nation.

Aside from the Neighbours stars and nominations, it's very hard not to get caught up in the excitement of the event - even if you don't have a clue who you're rooting for. My motto was get the autograph now, find out who they are later! Australian legends like Bert Newton, Rove and the comedy duo Kath & Kim (set to take the UK by storm) all contributed to making it one of the biggest and best Logie nights ever. Footy Show and Millionaire host Eddie McGuire did a great job compering the huge event.

And so the ceremony closes and the after parties begin. The stars dash between the main party, which was held on the banks of the Yarra River just outside the casino, and other private parties held by their television stations. Some stars leave early, while others party on. Presumably - or perhaps, hopefully - the ones that stayed may not have had to get up for work too early in the morning! Kyal Marsh, ever the gent, escorted Neighbours' Associate Producer, Jan Russ to her taxi before returning inside to continue meeting his fans. What was most apparent, amongst the Neighbours stars at least, was the positive air between them all. Laughing, chatting and helping each other out. Talking to and making time for the fans. There didn't appear to be room for anyone with an ego.

So next year, why don't you make the Logies even more special by actually being there? It really is a magical experience.

Delta should have won, although she couldn't do much acting.

Thank You [14 Mar 2004|05:00pm]

A Year Ago Today:

Hi again,

What fantastic news to come back to - "Lost Without You" debuting at #1 in Australia. Thanks to everyone who supported me and bought my single. I couldn't have done it without you!

As you probably all know I was just in the UK for a few days supporting the release of "Born To Try". I love going to London and had a great time the four days I was there. I'm a little jetlagged but it doesn't bother me because i'm having such a fantastic time doing what I love.

I've got a few instores coming up that I'm looking forward to and I'll also be performing for Channel V's Music bus in Melbourne this weekend. Hope to see you there.

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone in Melbourne who came out to Chadstone Shopping Centre to meet me. It was so great to see you all there and thank you personally for all your support. I am really looking forward to the rest of the instores around the country.

Well, I'm off to the UK again this week. It's just a short trip but I will be doing some promotion in London for my single "Born To Try". It's released in the UK next week so I am a bit nervous - but excited!

Hello New Zealand! [20 Feb 2004|05:00pm]

A Year Ago Today:

Hey everyone!

This week has been huge. I had a great time on Rove Live on Tuesday night. Not only did I get to chat with Rove and meet the other guests Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy, but I also got to perform "Lost Without You" with my new band. It was a big day for me cos I'd been up since 5am for Neighbours, but I really enjoyed doing the show.

This week I'm off to New Zealand for two days. It's my first time there and I'll be doing promo for the new single. I've got some instores coming up in Sydney and Melbourne over the next few weeks. If you get the chance to come out it would be great to meet you all.

Till next time,
Delta xx

A Year Ago Today:

This week has been pretty exciting for me. Radio stations around the country received a copy of my new single "Lost Without You" and I have been doing lots of interviews to support it.

Aside from that I have been rehearsing like mad for my performance on Rove. I can't wait. I'll be playing the new single live so I want to make sure it sounds perfect! I'll also be chatting to Rove, Corin and Peter on Saturday Morning Rive in the next couple of weeks.

Chat to you all again soon,

Delta xx

Hey everyone!
The last few weeks have been crazy. I had a great time in the UK promoting my single "Born To Try". Everyone there was so supportive - thanks guys! I'm home now and it's straight back into it. I'm back on the set filming scenes for Neighbours as well as working on the release of my next single "Lost Without You". Last night I was invited to perform at Melbourne's Crown Casino for the Alan Border Medal, which was pretty special and I hope to perform my new single on TV soon.

I Love London! [14 Jan 2004|05:00pm]

A Year Ago Today:

Hi everyone,
Things have got off to a great start in London this weekend. I performed on a show called SM:TV which is a huge Saturday morning TV show and it was awesome. They also interviewed me and played part of my film clip. Thanks to everyone who came up later and said hi and for all your loevly email messages. I really appreciate it.
After SM:TV I was on another program called CD:UK and got to meet Craig David and Kelly Rowland who just so happened to be backstage at the time. Check out the picture of Kelly and I in the photo gallery, she is really sweet.
Anyway, must go, but promise to keep you posted on what's happening.

I've only been back a short time and things are already buzzing. I'm back on the set of Neighbours, which is always a lot of fun. There's some juicy stuff coming up for Nina so make sure to keep watching.

Australian Open Controversy.... [05 Feb 2004|10:02pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Hiya everyone! I new to this community, and I hope that i can be a somewhat productive member of it. *smiles* Just so y'all know, my name is Kim, 18, Australia-bound.
Anyway, onto the topic at hand...
I am sure that you have all by this time heard about the comments that Pat Cash made in relation to Delta's relationship (be it platonic or otherwise) with Mark Philopoussus (I know that isn't spelt right... someone care to correct me? I really need to learn to spell it!), and how her being there affected his performance.
Firstly, I think it is plainly obvious to anyone that Pat Cash should mind his own business. What Scid decides to do with his time has nothing to do with him. Secondly, how dare he implicate Delta in all of this. She was there to show her support, and ended up having some loud mouthed has-been throw it back in her face. I personally think that Pat Cash should learn to control himself.
Has anyone heard on the Hodgkins front? Reading the paper today, things are looking really good. *crosses fingers*
