Jessica Mauboy’s new album ‘The Secret Daughter’ is available today.
Accompanying The Secret Daughter television series is an exhilarating new album featuring some impressive and dynamic covers of familiar songs, alongside a handful of brand new original recordings, all of which encapsulate the storyline to good effect.
“Originally, since the series is about a singer, it was just going to be an album which featured some well-known cover songs. Whilst I was getting ready for the role, and over the time I was working on my method-acting training I started to think about the song “Risk It”, produced by the guys from DNA Songs, which I had recorded earlier in the year. The lyrics of the song were parallel to the story, which we hadn’t even started to film yet, and it just seemed like a natural fit. I brought it up in one of the music-production meetings and everyone just loved it. So even though it wasn’t written specifically for the series, it tells the story of Billie Carter and what she goes through, and so it was a perfect match and a great way to launch the album and TV series.”
