DELTA GOODREM : Sitting On Top Of The World

After premiering it on the Today Show last week, then keeping it wrapped up safe on a music site since, Delta Goodrem has finally unveiled the official video of her new single 'Sitting On Top Of The World' for the rest of the world to see.
To be honest, we weren't sure what to think of the song when we first heard that 30 snippet a week and a half ago, but now we've heard the rest, it makes sense, especially in the context of the video, in which Ms Goodrem exudes pure joy and happiness.
Balloons are the order of the day (perhaps Ricki-Lee had some leftovers?) and Delta welcomes us to her visual treat with a warm, embracing smile. Dancing ensues - in a few different locations before the singer spies a piano in front of an old homestead.
She goes it alone on the ivories (standing, mind you) while her dancers do their business around her.
It's simple, yes, but it's actually rather effective and we can see this track being a grower over the coming months.

Does anyone else think she looks weird on the single cover and in the related scene in the video? I can't quite work out why — there's something different about her face.

Oh, only noticed the video you embedded is from your DeltaGoodrem account. That's strange, the video is on that account AND DeltaGoodremVEVO.

Hey Anonymous,

It's not our Delta Goodrem account!? It's Delta's account before they started switching everything across to Vevo.

Sorry, I didn't mean your account lol. (:

They uploaded the video on VEVO and then her DG account. Just strange it's in two places.

The problem with taking five years between albums is that people have super huge expectations when you finally come back - and I'm not sure this was worth the wait.

The song is proper catchy and worthy of success - but more of a second or third single from an album, rather than a lead release.

As for the video... I can't get over how cheap it looks. It is just me? Maybe it's the styling. Balloons? Really? Know I'm being critical here but this is Delta!

I actually have a feeling that Delta shot her video before Ricki-Lee. I may be wrong though.
