Delta Goodrem has returned with her first new music in two years.

The uplifting “Back to Your Heart”, written and produced by the Australian singer alongside Matthew Copley and John Shanks, is the first release on Goodrem’s label, ATLED Records.

The song was influenced by Goodrem’s experience of touring around the world over the past year. “I knew I wanted the new record to be filled with songs that the crowd can sing back to me, and dance away the night to,” she explains.

“”Back to Your Heart” is the first song that I wanted to share off this exciting new era of music together. The song is about letting go of your worries and fears that are in your head, and remembering to get back to what you love and lead with your heart.

“It’s anthemic, epic pop. It’s all about living in the here and now, and that feels liberating,” she adds.

It’s Goodrem’s first release since her 2021 album, Bridge Over Troubled Dreams, which became her fifth album to top the ARIA Albums Chart.

Next month, Goodrem will tour Australia to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her seminal album, Innocent Eyes. It’s 20 years since Goodrem released her now-iconic debut, and there haven’t been many more successful Australian albums in the time since. Innocent Eyes spent an unprecedented 29 weeks at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart at the time, making it the highest-selling debut in Aussie history.

The album spawned a remarkable five number one singles, making Goodrem the first artist to achieve the feat from a debut record. Innocent Eyes was also the highest-selling album of the entire decade between 2000 and 2009.

On her upcoming tour, Goodrem will perform her acclaimed debut album in full, including beloved hits like “Born to Try” and “Lost Without You”.

“I feel so grateful to have had all the opportunities this album has brought in my life and all the incredible people that took me into their homes with this album and who have been on this journey with me,” Goodrem said about her tour.

Delta Goodrem’s “Back to Your Heart” is out now via ATLED Records.
