Jessica Mauboy Releases New Song “Flashback”
Australian singer-songwriter Jessica Mauboy released a new song “Flashback” on November 10, 2023.
The song is the second single off of her upcoming fifth studio album “Yours Forever”, which is set to be released on February 9, 2024.
The track was written by James Gales, Jessica Mauboy, Nick Littlemore, and Toby Anagnostis. Produced by James Gales and Nick Littlemore.
The accompanying music video was directed by Rowena Rasmussen and Joel Rasmussen.
“‘Flashback’ is a song that holds a very special place in my heart - this song captures the exhilarating feeling of falling in love” Jessica Mauboy said of the song. “We’d begin each session with all the lights in the studio turned off and start improvising together - the guys would lay down synth and guitar ideas while I freestyled melodies over the top. That day, Nick came into the vocal booth and gave me the prompt to write about my love story, the love I have now with my husband. How do you capture that undeniably big love and share that with the world?”
- She continued, “It’s a lump in your throat, butterflies in your stomach, a giddy feeling. The lyrics 'Flashback I’m frozen, standing right in front of the one I’m gunna love' is reminiscent of when I first met my husband. I remember feeling frozen, my mind clearing, and the distinct feeling that our connection was a premonition of our love to come.”
The new album is her first body of work in five years since the 2019 album “Hilda”.
Jessica Mauboy said of the album, “Yours Forever is me at my truest self, comfortable in my skin, not comparing myself or trying to be someone or something that anyone expects me to be.”
She added, “When you strip it all back, musically it’s beautiful melodies, storytelling lyrics, rhythms that connect with the soul, and it has a depth that I’ve never gone to or shared before.”
