1000 Forms Of Fear is the sixth studio album by Australian singer-songwriter
Sia. "Chandelier," released in March 2014, served as the album's lead single. A
second single, "Eye Of The Needle," was released June 2, 2014.
Sia may be the busiest "retired" artist in the music business. She's achieved
huge commercial success and is famous despite her best efforts not to be. A pop
star who doesn't want to be a star, she is iconoclastic, uncompromising, and a
little zany. On Twitter, she identifies herself thusly: "i am sia, i was born
from the bumhole of a unicorn named steve." In 2013, she agreed to a rare
interview with Billboard, but insisted on posing for the cover wearing a paper
bag over her head. When RCA Records wanted to sign her, she asked for a clause
stipulating that she wouldn't have to tour or do interviews to promote her
album. They agreed. She's that good.
It's also because despite Sia's reluctance to embrace the spotlight, this
enigmatic Australian is the single most successful and prolific songwriter of
the past year, her tracks having sold upwards of 13 million *, classing up the
Hot 100 in the process and injecting it with a much-needed dose of emotional
authenticity. She has honed her pop melodicism through a string of solo albums:
2001's Hearing Is Difficult, 2004's Colour the Small One (which included the
achingly vulnerable "Breathe Me," memorably featured in the finale scene of the
HBO series Six Feet Under), 2008's Some People Have Real Problems, and 2010's We
Are Born. She also lent her lush, magical voice to records by British downtempo
duo Zero 7, ushering them to prestigious awards and critical acclaim in the U.K.
Now Sia is gearing up to release her fifth solo album, which she wrote and
recorded with longtime collaborator Greg Kurstin (P!nk, Kelly Clarkson, Tegan &
Sara). The first shot across the bow is the soaring single "Chandelier" - a
relentlessly honest account of her past years trying to keep her demons at bay
by partying ("Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on
for tonight"). The song (which she co-wrote with Jesse Shatkin) is signature Sia:
relentlessly honest, sonically epic, and with the kind of full-throated vocal
only she can deliver.
"...unforgettable listen" -Time Magazine
"Furler's gigantic voice, full of emotion and empathy, makes every sentiment
sound, well, like going from victim to victory." -New York Times
