We Are Born
Released On: Jun 22, 2010
Released By: Monkey Puzzle/Jive Records
The long-formidable Australia-born singer and songwriter Sia releases her fifth proper album, We Are Born. The record is the highly anticipated follow-up to her 2007 smash, Some People Have Real Problems, and was produced by Greg Kurstin (Kylie Minogue, Ke$ha, Lily Allen). We Are Born also features contributions from Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi and Inara George from The Bird and the Bee.
The first single "Clap Your Hands," which will be released May 25, is a deliriously happy burst of good times and a call to the dance floor wherever you are. The album is replete with future dance classics including "The Fight" and "You've Changed." The haunting signature Sia ballads are also present in the guise of the beautiful "I'm In Here" and emotive Madonna cover "Oh Father," mixed with pure sophisticated pop genius tracks like "Big Girl Little Girl" and "Stop Trying."
Sia's Grammy nominated inimitable sound and spirit have captured everyone's imagination, including Christina Aguilera who recently asked her to work on her forthcoming album.
