Last week, SBS announced versatile singer Vanessa Amorosi as one of the first two acts to compete at the Australian national selection Eurovision – Australia Decides.
That very same day, she announced that her new album, Back to Love, will feature the song she will enter at the national final in February 2020 – but remained coy on which track she will choose to perform, telling us to “Listen to my new album Back to Love and see if you can guess which song it is…” Ever since, the fandom has been hyped on figuring out just which song she should choose.
Her fifth album to date and first in ten years, Back to Love features 10 tracks that would be eligible to enter the song contest (the track “Heavy Lies the Head” was commercially released before the September 1 cutoff date and therefore will be ineligible for entry).
Her track, “Hello Me”, opens the album with a a pop ballad about fading love and finding comfort in herself – showcasing an evolved Vanessa from the one we knew a decade ago. And while it all may sound serious and reflective, she still knows how to have fun, with the bang-on-three-minute, dancing in the rain electronic banger “Gimme Your Love” a change of pace and one to get you moving. Her titular track, “Back to Love”, channels the gospel sound Vanessa has been exposed to since calling the US her home a decade ago. There’s a strong mix of ten songs, all with their unique presence and sound.
