‘I think transparency with people, sharing, is something that connects us closer,’ she explained.

‘Every time I was writing a song for the new album, I thought, “Well, I’m sharing so many stories in the room about different life moments, I want to be able to say in the book what they mean.”‘

Delta said that growing up she was always a fan of reading album liner notes.
