Delta has mentioned that she's almost done her 4th album and that it should be released in the middle of this year. The album is supposed to be closer to her roots of classical piano and be more stripped down than her last.
Here are some comments on what the album will be like:
“What resonates with me now is the acoustic guitar and piano. I’m enjoying writing songs that are more stripped back. I’ve done a 360 back to where I started, but hopefully it’s more evolved. I feel I’ve stepped up my game. I’m experimenting with different chord changes and different areas of music. I feel I can do anything on this album, I’m relishing that. I feel like the sky’s the limit but at the same time it’s very raw.” - Delta Goodrem
“I didn’t think she’d actually want to do it. Especially because of the style of this record – and especially now that her new record is going very back to her roots. She’s gone very back to the piano-based and big melodies thing and has steered away from that whole pop thing. But when she sang it, everyone agreed that while it doesn’t really fit with the rest of the songs, it’s a hit. It sounds like a hit.” - Brian McFadden (while talking about Delta guesting on his single "Mistakes")
“Delta Goodrem has turned a page in her life and is creating a “stripped back, earthy” sound for her new record… It is strange, turning 25 was like starting a new chapter for me” - Delta Goodrem
The album title is "Child of the Universe" and will be released in Australia on October 26th, the first single in the US will be "Wish You Were Here", which is about her best friend who died suddenly in a motorcycle accident, which will be released October 12th to radio.
