After the critically acclaimed single 'Chandelier', which definitely put Sia up in the mainstream stardome and made her reach an audience that might had never listened to her work, it's now time for a new song to display just how good she is, both as a singer and a songwriter (something she expressed throughout her all career, actually). Unfortunately, becoming famous seemed to have taken its toll on Sia, when after the success of her fifth album 'We Are Born' (2010), she became addicted to alcohol and drugs and almost commited suicide. But that's all behind her back now, as she's determined to conquer the world through her wonderful and powerful voice.
'Eye of the Needle' is the second single of the recently titled new album '1000 Forms of Fear', which will be released on July 8th. It's her sixth LP and it sees Diplo and Greg Kurstin handling the production. It's a more subtle song, far from the excesses of 'Chandelier', but it still makes it perfectly clear why many other famous singers have songs writen by Sia (Rhianna, David Guetta, Britney Spears...).
The album will feature twelve songs, including the already released two singles and 'Elastic Heart', the song that Sia wrote and performed, alongside Weeknd and Diplo and that was featured on 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' soundtrack, which is, in itself, a brilliant piece of music.
Listen to 'Eye of the Needle' and watch the magnetic official video for 'Chandelier', featuring 12 years old dancer Maddie Ziegler in a stunning performance.
