Jessica Mauboy records iTunes Session, out July 18!

Jessica Mauboy has recorded a very personal selection of live tracks that will be released as an exclusive iTunes Session on Friday July 18, 2014. Available for pre-order today, the live EP is curated by Jessica herself and includes some reworked hit singles as well as new material.  

Recorded at 301 Studios in Sydney in a raw and intimate setting in one take, Jess showcases her incredible vocal ability, true artist status and confirms her place as one of Australia’s most popular performers. 

The Jessica Mauboy iTunes Session includes previously unreleased versions of multi platinum hits Burn, Running Back, Inescapable and the classic Who’s Loving You as well as live versions of current hits, Never Be The Same and Pop A Bottle and a very special cover of Frank Oceans’ Thinking About You

With total creative license over the curated live set, the Jessica Mauboy iTunes Session is exclusive to iTunes and was produced using state of the art recording facilities allowing the listener to experience the music as the artist intended. 

Blown away by the opportunity to join the ranks of an exclusive group of global musicians like Kelly Clarkson, Emeli Sande, The Black Keys and Bernard Fanning, Jessica said, “I am thrilled to record my first iTunes Session to deliver something really special and unique for all my fans worldwide on iTunes.”

Jessica to perform at 2014 Commonwealth Games Flag Handover Ceremony!

Fresh from her ground breaking performance at Eurovision, Commonwealth Games Minister Jann Stuckey today announced, that Jessica Mauboy will take to the world stage at the official Flag Handover Ceremony (FHC) during the close of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Ms Stuckey said the Glasgow 2014 Closing Ceremony, broadcast to over one billion people, was a fantastic opportunity to give a taste of what our great state would offer when the Gold Coast hosts the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

 “Jessica is a passionate, energetic and wonderfully talented Australian who is as excited about the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ as I am,” Ms Stuckey said.

Jessica’s association with the Gold Coast 2018 bid, began with her performance at the Gold Coast celebration evening during the Commonwealth Games General Assembly in St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean and continued with her unveiling of the GC2018 emblem at the five years to go celebration in 2013.

Jessica said “I feel incredibly honoured and proud to be representing Australia at the Flag Handover Ceremony in Glasgow. It’s exciting to have the Commonwealth Games back in Australia and I can’t wait to be joining in all the festivities on the Gold Coast in 2018.”
