Sia fans have something to look forward to this spring: TV is My Parent is coming your way May 19, featuring a live concert recorded at the Hiro Ballroom in NYC on September 12, 2007, four music videos from her latest studio album, some people have REAL problems, and a bevy of â€œbehind the scenesâ€ videos shot by Sia and her friends while on tour. The Tripwire premiered Sia’s DVD announcement earlier today!
The past year was an amazing one for Sia. Her third solo album, some people have REAL problems, released in January 2008, landed on many criticsâ€™ â€œBest of 2008â€ year-end lists, hailed as her best album yet. She thrilled capacity crowds on 22-city tour of North America last spring, including a performance in front of 10,000 ecstatic fans at Coachella. She appeared on â€œLate Night with Conan Oâ€™Brienâ€ and â€œJimmy Kimmel Liveâ€, and capped of the year with a stunning performance on â€œLate Show with David Lettermanâ€. Last but not least, she ended the year being named â€œ#1 Pop Album of 2008â€ and â€œ#4 Album of 2008â€ on iTunes U.S.
TV is My Parent captures some of the best moments of the past two years. The disc kicks off with amazing live concert footage recorded at the Hiro Ballroom in 2007, where she performed tracks from some people have REAL problems and Colour The Small One, as well as some older material originally recorded in collaboration with Zero 7. It also features all four of the music videos created for some people have REAL problems, plus behind the scenes footage from her 2008 North American tour.
