Delta Goodrem collaborates with Olivia Newton-John, Dan Sultan and Georgia Flood on I Honestly Love You, the soundtrack to Seven Network’s Olivia Newton-John: Hopelessly Devoted To You biopic in which she plays the lead role.
Seven is still keeping tight-lipped about when the biopic screens but Sony is releasing the album on May 11.
Goodrem duets with Newton-John, ‘Love is a Gift’ and ‘Let Me Be There’.
Sultan features on ‘You’re the One That I Want’ and Flood on ‘Today’.
‘Love is a Gift’ is released as the lead-off single.
“I couldn’t think of anyone better to play my life,” states Newton-John.
“I respect Delta as a person and as an artist.
“I love her voice; she has an amazing range, and whoa, she does things vocally that just take my breath away.
“When we wrote ‘Love Is A Gift’, we wrote it as a love song.
“Now, when [Delta and I] sing it, it’s about friendship and love between friends.
“And so it still has the same meaning; it’s just a different time for the song.”
Goodrem adds, “I love the sentiment of this song – the lyrics just hit me and the simplicity of the message saying love is a gift.”
The Voice coach points out, “Having Olivia as a friend for all these years has been such an incredible gift.
“From a young age, she was an artist I admired and looked up to.”
