Delta Goodrem released a cover version of "I Don't Care" as her debut single on November 12, 2001.[6] It appeared on the ARIA Singles Chart,[6] but was not included on her debut album, Innocent Eyes (March 2003). The Sydney Morning Herald's Guy Blackman described the track as "an anonymous slice of Britney-esque 'tween-pop'".[7] Goodrem had been "discovered and nurtured" by Glenn Wheatley, and signed with Sony Music Australia.[6][8] The track was recorded with Vince Pizzinga (Danielle Spencer) producing.[6]

In August 2007 Goodrem explained to Andrew Denton on his show Enough Rope with Andrew Denton that the Britney image was foisted on her "when you start with a record company you don't really know what the whole process is. You don't know how the whole military operation before a song even gets to the radio and for people to even get to hear it".[8] The single is very rare and has been spotted selling on eBay for $199.99.[citation needed] Despite seldom mentioned as Goodrem's debut single, it did feature during her 2005 Visualise Tour. It was also featured in the "Edge of Seventeen" medley, which was included as a B-side to her "I Can't Break It to My Heart" single.

Music video[edit]

Goodrem's video for this song followed a simple theme. It showed an angsty Goodrem escaping from her parents' house to be with her rebellious boyfriend. The boyfriend takes Goodrem on a motorcycle ride into the forest, where he blindfolds her. When Goodrem takes her blindfold off, she is surrounded by a tree full of ribbons, a special surprise that was created by the boyfriend. The video is also intercut with scenes of Goodrem dancing in a Christmas-light-filled backdrop, and a scene where Goodrem is dancing in a wheat field.
