Hillsong Worship Covers Delirious?'s "Obsession" (Listen Here)
Hillsong Worship has just released their version of Delirious? hit from the 90s "Obesssion." The song features Brooke (Fraser) Ligertwood duetting with Jad Gillies.
When Delirious? frontman and songwriter Martin Smith heard the cover, he gave his two thumbs up. Smith writes: "So honoured that Hillsong @hillsongworship would record one of my songs Obsession written in 1995. Great vocals from @jadgillies1 and @brookeligertwood."
"Thankyou Hillsong for the years you have given us great songs. I wrote Obsession whilst in hospital recovering from a car crash in 1995 which was a catalyst for our band Delirious? starting. Praying this impacts people again in a whole new way. 'My heart burns for you' has been the love song of my life."
The song was written when Smith was in the hospital because of car crash. "I had fallen asleep at the wheel and was lucky to have survived." He continues: "The song just came to me in the hospital. "Obsession" is a very personal song. When people sing "my heart burns for you" they don't know exactly what it means, but they get part of it."
