Single #2 For Delta Goodrem Now Confirmed!!

Delta's follow-up to the chart-storming 'Out Of The Blue' has now been confirmed! The second single to be released from Delta's new album 'Mistaken Identity' will be the title track...'Mistaken Identity'! Expect to hear it on radio from December 6.

It's been one that's kept you'll guessing for sometime now, but we can now confirm that the second single from Delta Goodrem's new album 'Mistaken Identity' will be the title track 'Mistaken Identity'! The follow-up to her #1 smash 'Out Of The Blue' and already a firm favourite among fans, 'Mistaken Identity' will be released to media nationally on Monday, December 6, with an instore date to be announced shortly.

Co-written by Delta and famed songwriter Billy Mann (who can take the credit for Pink's 'God Is A DJ' and Jessica Simpson's 'With You' among his many accolades), 'Mistaken Identity' beautifully reflects the more sophisticated, and occasionally introspective, aspect of Delta's new album - the song's poignant lyrics leaving little doubt her life has changed immensely since she penned her debut album 'Innocent Eyes':

Erase and rewind, leave that sick girl behind and fast forward, fast forward
A thousand days/
The girl I used to be has a terrrible case of mistaken identity/
And yesterday's girl is not what you see/
It's a terrible case of mistaken identity
That's not me, it's just not me

The brilliant video for 'Mistaken Identity' was shot last week in Sydney, and we can reveal that the concept for the clip is based loosely on the classic film 'The Never-Ending Story', with Delta journeying through a fantasy world, reflecting on different experiences in her life. Expect to see it on music TV before Christmas!

Delta Goodrem Has A Quickie

 

 

 

Delta Goodrem's 'Mistaken Identity' has debuted at number one on the Australian album chart with one of the fastest selling albums of 2004 so far.

The album sold more than 54,000 units last week.

That makes 'Mistaken Identity' the second fastest selling album of 2004, behind Shannon Noll's 'That's What I'm Talking About' which debuted on February 16 after selling 131,000 units in the first week.

Delta has knocked Robbie Williams from the top in his forth week but the Williams album still managed a healthy 29,000 sales bringing his total tally to more than 140,000 units or legitimate double platinum.

Williams has the third fastest selling album of 2004 so far 'Greatest Hits' sold 46,000 units. Norah Jones is in 4th place with first week sales of 37,200 and Kasey Chambers is 5th with 25,800 units in week one.

Although the year is coming to a close, there are other contenders who may creep into the Top 5. Next week we will be watching Eminem's 'Encore' enter the chart. U2's 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb' should be big and Kylie Minogue's 'The Ultimate Kylie' also

Since the ARIA Awards, the Australian Record Industry has had a vigorous turn around in sales with the Top 6 albums this week all selling more than 10,000 units. In the week before the ARIA Awards, the number one album sold just 7,400 copies.

The Top 10 albums sold around 159,000 units last week, up 43,160 on the previous week.

Delta Goodrem To Make A Movie

Delta Goodrem will head to the big screen later this year. She has signed for a role in a new Australian flick to be called 'Hating Alison Ashley'.

Delta became a big star via the soapie Neighbours and has also had roles in 'A Country Practice', 'Hey Dad' and GP'. 'Hating Alison Ashley' will be her movie debut.

She will play the lead role. "I have been offered a quite a few roles over the past two years and whilst the timing for this movie is not ideal, I really felt a strong desire to accept the part of Alison Ashley" she says.

The movie will be produced by John Brosek (Wog Boy) and Elizabeth Howatt-Jackman and is based on the teenager's novel of the same name. "I adore the book and have an enormous respect for both John and Elizabeth, both of who I am very much looking forward to working with" Delta says.

Accepting a movie role has come as a surprise to many who expected the young Australian singer to concentrate solo on breaking in the USA this year. Her album 'Innocent Eyes' is yet to be released in the USA despite having sold more than one million copies in Australia.

Delta Goodrem Taps Robbie Williams Songwriter
 
Guy Chambers, the mastermind behind all of Robbie Williams' solo albums, has been in Los Angeles writing new music for Delta Goodrem.

Goodrem has recruited a group of top shelf writers in LA including Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith) and Billy Mann (Nick Lachey, Vitamin C).

Goodrem's contract with manager Glenn Wheatley ran out last Thursday and she is rumoured to have signed with a high profile management company in the USA for the impending release of her Innocent Eyes album.

Sony USA are pitching her for the "Celine Dion void" in the American market and plans to go with 'Born To Try' as the first single.

The new tracks will be added to the American release of 'Innocent Eyes'. The album will be released in the USA in July.

Delta's secret songs surface

A MILLION-dollar bidding war is looming over a secret album by Delta
Goodrem.
Goodrem recorded the album, Delta with Collingwood-based producers
Trevor Carter and Paul Higgins, from June 1999 to September 2000. But
it was shelved when Goodrem signed a label deal with Sony Music.
To date, Goodrem has distanced herself from Delta.
But this week Higgins will ask Goodrem to release the album, which
was buried in favour of her breakthrough million-seller Innocent
Eyes.
Higgins will then put Delta on the market and ask for record company
bids.
"When it is shopped around, every label would want a piece of it,"
Higgins said. "Then it is fair to assume if we released it, it would
be very successful. It would sell."
Industry experts predict bidding for the album would top $1 million.
"It'll top that easily," one record company boss said.
"Look at the numbers Innocent Eyes did, then look at the egos in this
business who want a Delta record in their catalogue.
"At the end of the day, there will be a fierce bidding war."
Goodrem was a development artist, with a two-album deal, contracted
to Higgins and Carter's label, Empire, when she recorded Delta.
Goodrem was then an ambitious 15-year-old keen to emulate the pop
sound of the Spice Girls, Britney Spears and Mandy Moore. According
to the Empire deal, the Delta album is co-owned by Higgins, Carter,
Goodrem and her parents, Lea and Dennis.
Goodrem wrote two songs on Delta: a power ballad, Love, and light
rocker Just Blame Me. She filmed a video for a ballad, Say. Carter
wrote 11 tracks.
"Technically, this record can be released and it cannot be stopped by
Sony," Higgins said.
"Obviously, we can't act alone, but we don't think there is any good
reason not to release it.
"It's a great album and it doesn't say bad things about Delta.
"The point is, this record was always meant to be released. The whole
purpose was to record a finished album that would see the light of
day."
Sony Music is aware of Delta. Those recordings were partly
responsible for Goodrem being noticed and signed to the company.
Higgins said Sony shortlisted five tracks to be used on Innocent
Eyes, but then decided to use other songwriters and producers.
"We didn't get a look in ever again. It was the classic case of a
record company reinventing the artist, going back to the drawing
board and throwing out all the groundwork that had been done," said
Higgins, who has approached Sony to release Delta. Sony has said he
should discuss the matter with Lea Goodrem.
That stance confuses Higgins and Carter. Is Delta the album Goodrem
and Sony want nobody to hear?
"I would hope not. Then, she was very proud of it. It showed off her
determination, ability and talent from a young age," Carter said.
Higgins added: "It needs to be appraised and appreciated for what it
is. These were Delta's early years. Now, she might have political
reasons, or reasons to do with her future career, that may sway her
attitude to this album. She may see it as something from her past and
not relevant now.
"But there is nothing to ashamed of. It deserves to be heard."


Princess who lived her dream
ONCE upon a time, there was an aspiring pop princess called Delta
Goodrem. Unlike other pop wannabes, her dreams were backed by talent,
ability, charisma, energy and drive.
Many believe Goodrem's fairytale began with her million-selling
Innocent Eyes album.
But it started with Delta, 13 tracks recorded at the age of 15, then
shelved after signing a major label deal.
Delta puts the Goodrem phenomenon in perspective. It captures,
perfectly, the first steps of a future star.
Producer-songwriter Trevor Carter reveals 11 effervescent, catchy pop
flavours. She handles them like a seasoned pro: Britney-sonics on
What Kind Of Girl and an instant power ballad with Promise. There's a
defiant vibe on Just Blame Me and mature pop with slow, low beats on
Love. On The Flame and Spirit, Goodrem is in patriot mode. This album
shows the promise Goodrem fulfilled with Innocent Eyes, and is still
to do in the future.
