‘INNOCENT EYES’ TURNS 10’
DELTA GOODREM’S RECORD-BREAKING DEBUT ALBUM IS A DECADE OLD
2013 marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Delta Goodrem’s landmark debut album, INNOCENT EYES.
To commemorate this historic event in Australian music, DELTA GOODREM and SONY MUSIC AUSTRALIA are set to release a very special all-new edition of INNOCENT EYES – TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY ACOUSTIC EDITION set for release on Friday, 29th November, 2013.
Alongside the classic album and new artwork, this tenth-anniversary deluxe version of INNOCENT EYES – TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY ACOUSTIC EDITION will include a brand new recording of the 14 original songs from the record, performed and also filmed live in Sydney’s legendary 301 Studios.
Delta and her band recently reconvened at 301 for these very special sessions, to re-imagine and re-record INNOCENT EYES from start to finish. It’s as much a celebration as it is a musical reinvention, the now 28-year-old Delta Goodrem revisiting the songs she wrote and recorded as a teenager that made her into the superstar she is today.
