Single News: Sia Presents New Single and Video for “Clap Your Hands”!
Adelaide-born pop sensation, Sia Furler, proudly presents her brand new single, “Clap Your Hands”, taken from forthcoming album, ‘We Are Born’!
“‘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 that left the downtempo universe then at its height of fashionability, and she mentions her earlier albums. “I’m really impressionable about music,” she begins. “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,” Sia sniffs, “apparently I was a downtempo artist exclusively. ‘We Are Born’ is the album I’ve made when I’ve been hanging out with myself.”
The release of the new single, 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 (‘Best Music DVD’), and performed on nationally televised platforms including Australia’s 2009 MTV Awards, Channel 10’s Rove and Channel 7’s Sunrise. On an international front, Sia has been co-writing songs with Christina Aguilera for the pop icon’s forthcoming album ‘Bionic’.
