Adelaide-born pop sensation, Sia Furler, will return with her highly-anticipated fifth album, We Are Born, this 4th June on Monkey Puzzle through Inertia.
To satisfy the appetite of fans, Sia has uploaded an exclusive stream of six brand new tracks to her website, www.siamusic.net, including the album’s first official single, ‘Clap Your Hands’.
With teaser single ‘You’ve Changed’ already proving a major hit – earning constant rotation on Nova and Triple J – Australians have fallen in love with the home-grown songstress turned global star and media personality.
The release of We Are Born follows a massive 12 months for Sia, in which she has staged two sell-out tours of Australia, had a radio smash with ‘Buttons’, won an ARIA Award, and performed on nationally televised platforms including Australia’s 2009 MTV Awards, Channel 10’s Rove and Channel 7’s Sunrise. On the international front, Sia has been co-writing songs with Christina Aguilera for the pop icon’s forthcoming album Bionic.
“We Are Born is the album I’ve been wanting to make since Colour the Small One,” explains Sia, referring to her 2004 album. “But I wasn’t allowed to.” She is talking about her former record company’s wholesale refusal a while back to accept music from her.
“I’m really impressionable about music,” she muses. “When I was hanging out with hip-hoppers I made Healing Is Difficult in 2000. When I was hanging out with Zero 7, I made Colour the Small One. In 2008 I made Some People Have Real Problems – because apparently I was a down-tempo artist exclusively. We Are Born is the album I’ve made when I’ve been hanging out with myself.”
