Sia Furler chatted online with fans at Gigwise.com last week, where she talked about writing with Christina Aguilera on her ‘Back To Basics’ follow-up. “Xtina and I completed 4 songs together with my mate and co-writer Sam Dixon,” Furler said. “We will be credited as co-writers, and I guess I did some vocal production and Sam did the other production. I call her the Mad Scientist because she is the most technically brilliant singer I’ve ever met. She scrambled my mind.”
Sia Furler checked in with fans on her official web site’s blog at Siamusic.net on Thursday (April 23), talking about working with Christina Aguilera on Christina’s fourth album. Sia’s also a big fan of Christina’s baby son Max. Furler writes:
Christina is still amazing as ever, I call her the mad scientist, and oh, how we laugh. The songs are shaping up beautifully, and I’m super proud of us. I seriously want to chomp on her kid like he’s corn on the cob. Holy cuteness.
Sia Furler updated fans on her official web site’s blog on Monday (March 30) while in Australia. Sia tells readers:
Gosh it’s nice to see some sun and eat mint slices.
So anyhoo, I have had some crazy laryngitis for the past 4 days, which I thought was totally psychosomatic because I also lost my voice before David Letterman, but it magically reappeared the day of the show, and so I figured it was anxiety related, as it would be this time, i.e. nerves about MTV Australia, but apparently green sputum means it’s not psychosomatic, and now I know that.
I managed to make it through the awards, and it was hard work, but also fun, because I got to dress up all glam with tinsel shoulders and balmain shoes and lipstick, although in hindsight I will never EVER wear makeup again, or let someone cut my fringe/bangs right before a show, because guess what?

Sia Furler spoke with the Herald Sun about working with Christina Aguilera to write on her new album, getting won over by the ‘Dirrty’ singer’s fan e-mail that showed some knowledge of her catalog of work. “Obviously she likes ‘Breathe Me’, that’s the one everyone goes for, but she mentioned seven songs as far back as the first Zero 7 album, and songs like ‘Destiny and Distractions’, and a song called ‘Moon’ from my last album that nobody ever picks as a favorite,” Sia explained. “That won her some points, she’s a listener, she knows my random album tracks nobody gives a sh** about. That’s pretty flattering.”
Sia Furler is out with the music video to her new single ‘Soon We’ll Be Found’, the third release from the Australian pop singer’s third studio album ‘Some People Have Real Problems’, out now on Hear Music. Watch it below.

After telling Attitude magazine that she was having relationship problems with an American girl, Sia Furler spoke with AfterEllen.com about her decision to come out. “I’ve been talking to my love interest about what I am, and she’s like, ‘Are you going to come out?’ And I said, ‘I guess already did in Attitude.’ And I’d already told all my friends,” Furler told Trish Bendix. “The thing is I feel kind of straight because she’s kind of like a boy. [My love interest] thinks I’m straight. She’s like, ‘You’re straight; it’s just that your girlfriend is gay.’ So I’m straight, it’s just that my boyfriend’s a girl? She’s like, ‘I don’t care, whatever you’d like.'” Read more.
Sia Furler took part in an interview and performance for A&T blue room. Talking about her new album ‘Some People Have Real Problems’, Sia said she chose the name of the disc because “it was kind of the mantra while we were making the album. People like the players and producers would come to the studio and they’d have complaints like, ‘Oh the traffic’ or ‘Oh, that sound, that high pitched sound’, and things like that. And I don’t know who started it, but someone said, ‘Yeah, but some people have real problems.’ And it just made life easier. Some people don’t have parents or food, or arms and legs and they get along just fine. And I realize our problems are totally bushwa, rich people’s problems and how whack it was and how awesome it would be to just be responsible, especially now getting a bit successful and stuff. It’s really scary time, because I could really go either way. I got lots of really successful friends, and some of them are like totally bought into the reverence and hype of who they are, and then there’s some that haven’t and are just normal, regular folk. Although I like both types for different reasons, I want to be the latter, personally.” The interview, and performances of ‘Day Too Soon, ‘Little Black Sandals’, and ‘Breathe Me’, has since been removed from attblueroom.com.
Sia Furler is set to release her third studio album ‘Some People Have Real Problems’ on Tuesday, and ahead of that, fans can listen to the Australian pop singer’s 13-track CD on her MySpace player. Listen to the album in full at myspace.com/siamusic.
