Fourth Video Caps Off Stellar Year for Siaâ€™s Latest Release, some people have REAL problems
When creating her new music video for the song â€œSoon Weâ€™ll Be Found,â€ 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. â€œI’ve always been obsessed with the beauty of sign language,â€ Sia explains. â€œTo 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.â€ The video premiered on MTVu yesterday http://www.mtvu.com/video/?id=1594080&vid=273725
And now the video is also viewable with a special intro message from Sia to http://perezhilton.com/tv/?videoid=24d9b924474c8
Siaâ€™s interest in how other people experience the world â€“ particularly those whose lives may be more challenging than her own â€“ 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, Siaâ€™s star is on the rise. Selling over 100,000 CDs and counting, she has appeared on â€œLate Night with Conan Oâ€™Brienâ€ and â€œJimmy Kimmel Liveâ€ 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 â€œBreathe Meâ€ was featured in the final episode of â€œSix Feet Underâ€ 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, Siaâ€™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 Siaâ€™s best recording yet!
