Goodrem uses song­writ­ing to fly past Jessie J con­tro­versy

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

DELTA Goodrem may be in a bat­tle with Jessie J on The Voice but she’s ex­press­ing her power through song.

The singer, who has been go­ing through some on­screen dis­agree­ments with her fel­low coach on the Nine Net­work re­al­ity show, has an­nounced she will re­lease a new sin­gle later this month. Wings was writ­ten by Goodrem and pro­duc­tion com­pany DNA.

“I wanted to make sure I had a song that in­cor­po­rated all the things that make me feel like a pow­er­ful woman. You al­ways want a song to rep­re­sent where you are now,” Goodrem said.

“Wings just feels fresh. The mean­ing of the song is about look­ing for new hori­zons, ev­ery­body is look­ing for a sec­ond chance.”

Apart from em­brac­ing sec­ond chances, Goodrem says she’s also learnt how to let things go.

“I wanted Wings to con­vey that lib­er­ated feel­ing; with a bit of wild­ness meets a bit of let­ting go. That’s been a big theme, where I’ve kind of let a lot go. These wings are made to fly,” she said.
