Wings is the brand new single from Australian chanteuse Delta Goodrem and the lead single from her upcoming, as-yet-untitled fifth studio album.
The new record follows the 2012 release of Delta’s last full length set Child of the Universe which spawned three above-par single offerings in the shape of the joyous popathon Sitting on Top of the World, the turbo-fired electro-pop belter Dancing With A Broken Heart and the emotional ballad Wish You Were Here.
Since then, there has been a run of stand alone singles which started promisingly with Heart Hypnotic but had pretty much run out of momentum by the time we got to Only Human in March – via a cover of Martika’s Love…Thy Will Be Done.
The tempo-shifting, orchestrally-arranged Wings reverses that downward trend, with Delta’s breathy vocals back at the fore as they gush at varying rates of acceleration and pitch, over a mounting crescendo of uplifting, runaway beats.
This package would now benefit further from some bloody good remixes to go with it, but tou can download Wings from iTunes now – and you can also catch Delta on The Voice Australia where she is currently coping admirably with the increasingly intolerable Jessie J.
