New Sia Video for “Soon We’ll Be Found” Created in Sign Language

Fourth Video Caps Off Stellar Year for Sia’s Latest Release, some people have REAL problems

When creating her new music video for the song “Soon We’ll Be Found,” from her latest CD, some people have REAL problems, Sia decided to sign as well as sing the song, in honor of the language and those who use it to communicate. “I’ve always been obsessed with the beauty of sign language,” Sia explains. “To ignorant hearing me, the movement and expression appears as a dance — a beautiful, emotive dance. But the real beauty is the communication hidden within these perfect shapes.” The video premiered on MTVu yesterday http://www.mtvu.com/video/?id=1594080&vid=273725

Sia’s interest in how other people experience the world – particularly those whose lives may be more challenging than her own – is part of who she is as an artist, as underscored in the very title of her latest CD. And yet in a year that has been challenging for most recording artists, Sia’s star is on the rise. Selling over 100,000 CDs and counting, she has appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and thrilled capacity crowds on 22-city tour of North American last spring, along with her performance in front of 10,000 ecstatic fans at Coachella.

Originally known as the vocalist for Zero 7 (Simple Things, When It Falls and The Garden), Sia made her first splash as a solo artist when her song “Breathe Me” was featured in the final episode of “Six Feet Under” in late 2005, and which shot to #1 on iTunes the following day. This year the hauntingly beautiful song was featured in a Coca-Cola commercial created to honor the Special Olympics, which aired during the recent coverage of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Released in January of this year, Sia’s latest CD is at once upbeat, quirky, and achingly gorgeous, featuring incredible song writing and lush arrangements. The album was produced by Jimmy Hogarth, and features some notably talented friends, including Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee) and Beck.

Music critics nationwide agree that some people have REAL problems is Sia’s best recording yet!
