Jessica Mauboy has premiered her first new song in almost two years, with the shimmery and disco-influenced "Glow." The new single from the proud Kuku Yalanji and Wakaman woman is a bit of a needed refresh, reboot and reintroduction to the Jessica Mauboy we’ve known for the last decade. She has spent the last couple of years reflecting on the kind of person she is; Jessica noted in a release that she had grown tired of being a “yes” person and instead needed time to step back, start over, and allow herself to grow. “I got tired of being a yes person,” Mauboy said of the single in a statement. “Mentally, it was self-destructive: my body and my mind were saying, ‘Hey, you gotta really take care of yourself. 'Glow' stems from realizing it’s okay to stop, zoom out and start over fresh.” The song also marks Mauboy’s debut release since signing to Warner Music Australia after spending 14 years with Sony Music Australia. With the latter, she released four albums, including 2019’s "Hilda." "Glow" is accompanied by a Ribal Hosn-directed music video that sees Mauboy perform among a sea of golds, reds and glitter. Mauboy is set to embark on a nationwide tour next year, hitting Canberra, Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, before wrapping things up in the Gold Coast. Caiti Baker is on board to open for Mauboy across all dates.
