Overnight at the Prime Minister's Olympic and Paralympic dinner in Melbourne, ARIA Award winning artist Jessica Mauboy debuted "Higher" " the Australian Team Song set to soundtrack the Australian Olympians at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. 


Due out for release on Thursday, July 11, "Higher" is available to pre-order and pre-save now via Warner Music Australia. 




The origins of the Australian Team Song began with musician and producer Will Hyde who approached the Australian Olympic Committee to develop this creative project. Together, Hyde, with the support of manager Sky McElroy of Pack, strategist Samuel Koh of Kohlver, and the Australian Olympic Committee invited Australian athletes to shape the theme, spirit and lyrical content of their Australian Team Song.


Penned by Australian songwriters Shannon Busch and Stephen Mowat, "Higher" immediately resonated with the Australian Olympic Committee for its powerful lyrics that reflect the commitment, resilience and aspirations of the Australian athletes. 


Adding her commanding vocal on "Higher", Mauboy shares, "It's an absolute honour to lend my voice in support of our incredible Aussie athletes. "Higher" captures the spirit and energy of our amazing team, and I know I speak for all Aussies when I say we are thrilled to celebrate their dedication, passion, and the pride they bring to us all."


"Warner Music is proud to celebrate the dedication and spirit of our Olympians with the Australian Team song "Higher"" says Dan Rosen, Warner Music Australasia President. "Jessica Mauboy's soaring vocals deliver an inspiring song for our athletes as they go for gold at the 2024 Paris Olympic games."


Chair of the Australian Olympic Committee and four-time Olympian Cate Campbell adds, "Lyrically it speaks to the reality of an Olympian's path to the Games and melodically, it's a killer track. It's uplifting and a great chorus – I can just see our Olympic athletes in Paris belting this out, some better than others."


Mauboy will next perform "Higher" live in Paris on Wednesday, July 24 at the launch of the Australian Olympic Committee's Flag Bearer Ceremony at the French Mint (Accueil Monnaie de Paris) ahead of performing "Higher" at the homecoming ceremony for the Australian Olympic athletes in Sydney on Wednesday, August 14, broadcast live on Channel Nine.


"Higher" directly follows Mauboy's highly acclaimed fifth studio album YOURS FOREVER released in February this year. Written and recorded on home soil, the new album explores themes of love, hope, heartbreak, and resilience which further propels Mauboy's introspective song writing and infectious pop melodies that audiences have come to know and love.
