SPOTIFY: Jessica Mauboy – The Day Before I Met You
Jessica Mauboy will release a brand new single The Day Before I Met You on Friday February 13. The Day Before I Met You is the follow up single from the ARIA Platinum smash hit Can I Get A Moment? and is the 6th track to be lifted from her # 3 ARIA charting and Platinum selling album Beautiful The Platinum Edition.
The CD single includes an incredible acoustic version of Can I Get A Moment?, and will be delivered to media on Thursday February 5, 2015.
The Day Before I Met You is a deeply personal track that Jessica wrote with Antonino Dixon, Kenny “Babyface’ Edmonds, Khristopher Riddick-Tynes and Helen Jane Culver. The video directed by Nick Watterman, traces Jess’ journey back to her hometown of Darwin, reconnecting with her family, friends and community and captures the raw simple emotion of what the people and place mean to her.
This song is about my own journey in life and reflects on my family and loved ones as well as the people, the lifestyle, the spirit & soul of my hometown of Darwin. It is the one place that I can go back to and I feel connected and free and that is so important to me.
Ultimately, what shapes us most, is where we have come from and the people that surround us. My upbringing and community keeps me strong, encourages me and reminds me of who I am and to be proud of that. Jessica Mauboy
