Merry bloody Christmas because Delta Goodrem has surprise-dropped a Christmas album. The sweetheart of Aussie music has delivered a 13-track album filled with covers of classic carols.
The album includes classics like ‘Deck the Halls’ and ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ as well as modern carols like ‘Grown-Up Christmas List’.

She also shared news of the title track’s lyric video on Instagram. It sees her recreate that infamous Love Actually scene, the one with the cards.
On it, she said, “What you can’t see is a team of elves running around behind the scenes, catching and organising my cards and everyone shouting when to flip them because I couldn’t see anything.”
Delta Goodrem is heading out on a national tour next year. Find her Bridge Over Troubled Dreams 2021 tour dates here.
