SINGLE REVIEW: Jessica Mauboy – Little Things

Following the announcement of her fourth studio album ‘Hilda’ which will finally be released on October 18, Jessica Mauboy is stripping everything back to find her roots. Offering her deepest and most personal collection to date, the Australian favourite is going to give fans a rare insight into her life. 

To coincide with the album announcement she’s dropped the stunning new single ‘Little Things’ which proves just how intimate this record will be. The simple but beautiful piano ballad is a heartbreaking but real song about the ups and downs of love. Guiding you on an emotional rollercoaster, this low key piano ballad transforms with the addition of swaying strings. 

Candidly discussing her relationship, she reflects on the moments where she’s gotten a little choked up by things he’s said or the misguided actions he’s made that he hasn’t realised has made an impact on her. “I make big things out of little things and I watch you keep missing them. You don’t get why it’s killing me. Every time you mess this up”. 

It’s the honest little truths that every relationship has because at the end of the day we are all human. No one is perfect and that’s important to remember. But this song is. With every listen you will fall more and more in love with her stunning vocal delivery and her beautiful arrangement. It’s been kept simple and it’s because of that reason that it stands out so boldly.
