Single Review: Delta Goodrem – Dear Life

Delta Goodrem Dear Life

Delta Goodrem debuts brand new single ‘Dear Life’
It has been a while since we heard anything from Delta Goodrem. The Australian singer-songwriter launched a successful comeback last summer with the single ‘Wings’, which reached the number 1 position in her home country. A new album was not yet announced and we had to wait until today to hear a new tune. Her single ‘Dear Life’ has just premiered over on Fox fm and Delta will perform the track live for the first time during the Logie Awards ceremony, which will take place on the 8th of May. Just two days before that event, on the 6th of May, ‘Dear Life’ will officially be released.

‘Dear Life’ is an endearing pop song that asks a question we all ask ourselves every now and then when it comes to the choices we make. Delta wonders if she is doing it right and even asks life itself for a little bit of help along the way. Admitted, the lyrics to ‘Dear Life’ are not the most original you will hear today, but at the same time, her angelic vocals still make it sound honest and heartfelt. It is a catchy little tune with a lot of strings, which makes it sound like it belongs to the same album as previous single ‘Wings’. At the same time it has to be said that ‘Wings’ was a single with a lot more hit potential. Still let’s hope ‘Dear Life’ will do well for Delta as well, in first place for the fact that it might bring her fifth album a little step closer!
