Australian singer-songwriter Delta Goodrem says she loves it when people sing along to her music.
Goodrem, 28, told TV ONE's Breakfast this morning that she chose her song Sitting on Top of the World as the opening single for her new album Child of the Universe because it has a positive and uplifting vibe.
"I think that song was a new chapter. I was wanting people to be able to sing along, which is why I had it as the first song," she said.
However, Goodrem added that the rest of the songs on the album tackle darker and more serious themes.
"But when you start to know the record and you start to see the different colours, there's a lot of depth and it's more serious," she said.
Goodrem also said that she writes all of her own lyrics, and is inspired by her own experiences.
"I believe in soul connection to lyrics, I've been like that since I started.
"Every song I've ever written has been about my life. And this album is no exception," said Goodrem.
Sydney-born Goodrem added that it is often a challenge to keep her personal life private.
"I try to live my life amongst it, and I've always tried to be able to keep a fine line between being creatively fulfilled and at the same time giving my all to people who support my music," the starlet told Breakfast.
The Born to Try singer also said that decided to accept the role as coach on talent show The Voice Australia so that she could nurture upcoming talent.
"I was fortunate to have so much support from people and I now look at it as a time when I learnt so much, and now I've been able to give back in my life.
"I've learnt so much over the years, and I felt that I wanted to be able to give back, as I know the industry like the back of my hand," she said.
