Jayne Denham honors father with single ‘Beautiful World’
Three time Golden Guitar nominee Jayne Denham releases latest single “Beautiful World” off her 5th studio album “WANTED” to honor the passing of her father. Jayne’s father and manager for many years known as “THE DON”, knew his favorite Jayne songs the second he heard them. “Beautiful World” not only moved his soul for the incredible uplifting track it is, but it became his anthem as he fought his battle with mesothelioma. Not many people could find such positive light and freedom in such a time of uncertainty and deep sorrow, but just like Jayne, no matter the hurdle, no matter the fall, Don knew you will always land on higher ground in a more beautiful world.
From the inception of the first drum to the effortless harmonica dueting the guitar, you know you are in for a sweet retreat. “I feel the sun dripping on my skin, God must know the shape I am in,” gives you a glimpse into the powerful anthem that is “Beautiful World”. No matter what you are going through, Jayne refuses to let you fall as line after line encourages us to let the brokenness be gone and to rise up.
“My Dad had been unwell and when the new album ‘Wanted’ was released, he would often call and say how much ‘Beautiful World’ helped him get through the tougher days. So many people have contacted me to say how much this song is their anthem to celebrating new freedoms. I have had literally hundreds of messages saying how much, like my Dad, it has lifted them through their hard times. Sadly, my Dad passed away on October 4th 2021, so we decided to release ‘Beautiful World’ as a tribute to him, and hope that it helps you smile and look at each day in both the best and worst of times, no matter what you’re going through.”
Ian “Macca” McNamara, ABC’s Australia All Over says, “How good is this song. It’s Anthemic (it resonates like an anthem). Upbeat and positive. Thank you Jayne”
“I knew the first time I heard Jayne’s song ‘Beautiful World’ that it would appeal to a broad audience. The positive message of the lyrics is timely and so badly needed in these divisive times. With its anthemic melody and sing-along chorus, ‘Beautiful World’ is destined to be Jayne’s biggest career hit so far.” – Jeff Chandler, Chandler Music Works
