Singer/songwriter/producer/massive hit maker Sia has released today a new song entitled “Eye Of The Needle” from her forthcoming album 1000 Forms Of Fear set for release July 8th on RCA/Monkey Puzzle Records. Fans who pre-order her new album 1000 Forms Of Fear on iTunes and Amazon will receive “Eye Of The Needle” instantly. “Eye of the Needle” was written by Sia and Christopher Braide and produced by Greg Kurstin. The album 1000 Forms Of Fear was produced by Greg Kurstin and recorded at Echo Studio in Los Angeles.
“Chandelier,” the debut and current single from 1000 Forms Of Fear was written by Sia and Jesse Shatkin and produced by her longtime collaborator Greg Kurstin, along with Shatkin, and its video has exploded online with over 20 million views since its release, and stars an incredibly compelling dance performance by Maddie Zeigler (age 11) of the Lifetime Television show Dance Moms. The video was directed by Sia and Daniel Askill and shot in Los Angeles at the old Herald Examiner building in Downtown LA.
Raves Pitchfork of the video and song: “Sia’s voice blasts off, the swelling strings propelling her past her contemporaries in the inspirational-pop stratosphere. It’s a jaw-dropping vocal performance that’s enough to convince you she could have a stadium-touring career of her own. The video is filled with the same irrepressible spirit that colors this song.” Time Magazine calls “Chandelier” a contender for “song of the summer” and “the year’s most sobering party anthem…a disarming, unforgettable listen.”
An astonishingly prolific hit maker and songwriter, Sia has penned several monster hits over the last few years. In 2013 alone, she’s crafted songs for pop icons including Rihanna (“Diamonds”), Katy Perry (“Double Rainbow”), Britney Spears (“Perfume”), Beyoncé (“Pretty Hurts”) and Celine Dion, as well as working with Kylie Minogue, Angel Haze, and executive producing label mate Brooke Candy’s forthcoming album and EP Opulence. Sia is also the featured vocalist on some of the most massive hits she has written for others including “Titanium” with David Guetta, “Beautiful Pain” with Eminem, and “Wild Ones” with Flo Rida.
