“There’s a reason you’re sharing these vulnerabilities or these stories,” Delta explained.
“I think that kind of transparency that happens with sharing people is something that connects us even more.
“ There is strength and vulnerability, but I think the reason you share it is because you don’t know what someone else is going through that someone else might relate. ”
Connections: “ With writing songs there is a shared experience to be able to connect with people, ” Delta told Daily Mail Australia of its decision to continue making music.

Delta also opened up about her decision to release a song about her secret health battle where she lost the ability to speak.
“When we were on lockdown it was a really important message to say that you just don’t know what someone is going through,” she said.
“Through the music I’m able to say how I feel and talk about it about that moment of stillness, but that was really the heart of what made this whole album. It was the reset.
Delta continued, “ It was back to being barefoot at the piano, playing my song, writing with the heart, and being honest in music. ”

In April 2020, the singer announced that she would offer fans a series of weekly concerts.
Speaking of her struggles to adjust to a new digital age – which involved regularly ditching wifi and figuring out how to flip her iPhone’s camera during the stream – she said: “ It was so funny. I mean, it really was.
“Not only have I grown up in the public eye all my life, but I was like ‘okay everyone can come to my living room every week and see how I learn technology.’
