Sia‘s latest album, We Are Born, hit stores this past Tuesday.
Produced by Greg Kurstin (one half of the Bird and the Bee), the new album does a great job in capturing Sia’s upbeat and bubbly personality.
Although the majority of songs on the album are a departure from the downtempo vibe that originally put Sia on the map, old fans will still eat it up.
Highlights include “You’ve Changed,” “Be Good To Me” and a cover of Madonna’s “Oh Father”. For those of you who love to hear Sia slow things down, “I’m In Here” is just for you.
Sia’s official website, www.siamusic.net has undergone a makeover as well. Check it out to read her blogs, watch music videos, download exclusive remixes and catch up on all the latest news.

The Bird and the Bee (Inara George and Greg Kurstin) played not too far from home when they took the stage at the Echoplex in Los Angeles, CA on April 6th. The band has been playing a lot of local dates recently, as this was my third time seeing them this year.
Before the show, I ran into Inara outside the venue and thanked her for the station ID she recorded for the radio station a month or so ago (to hear it, tune into to Sirens of Song Online Radio). I then made a very feeble attempt at small talk, yet she was as gracious as always. Even gave me some ideas of where to eat before the show.
To give a quick rundown of the night, the band opened up with “My Love,” mellowed it out with “How Deep Is Your Love,” and covered Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” which afterward turned into an on-stage discussion of the song’s title. The hijinks didn’t end there though.
