Everybody knows Jessica Mauboy, but they don't know Jessica Hilda Mauboy.
Hilda is Mauboy's middle name and the title of her fourth studio album. It's only fitting that the multi-ARIA award winner opted for a moniker that is deeply personal - Hilda is without question Jessica’s most deeply personal work to date.
For the first time, Jessica has co-written every track for this new album, including the lead single Little Things which reveals a new facet of Mauboy's stunning vocal range and songwriting.
WATCH: Who Is Jessica Mauboy?
It's no question that she's come a long way since we first met her as a 16-year-old auditioning for Idol back in Darwin. This is an album of songs about the Little Things in our lives – the quiet moments on a Sunday afternoon, the private thoughts alone in a taxi cab, the 3am reflections, the little rejections, the disappointments, the small heartbreaks, but ultimately about hope and spirit which amount to the biggest things - who we are.
It is an album about the two families in one's life - the family we are born in to and the family we choose. It is an album she is deeply proud of and unlike her previous albums, it is the most naked & raw she has ever been.
