Be prepared: Sia‘s 1000 Forms of Fear is about to arrive.
RCA stated as much today (May 14) while revealing crucial details. The album is out July 8 on RCA/Monkey Puzzle Records. Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Kelly Clarkson, Pink) is its sole producer, save for one song featuring Diplo. Its cover art (above) features Sia’s trademark straw-colored bob, as seen on Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler in her video for lead single “Chandelier.”
And its 11-song tracklist nearly confirms what The New York Times wrote of her new music: “an older vintage of Sia, with sadder, brutal lyrics that are far too violent and introspective for Top 40 radio.” Not that that’s a bad thing, for the songwriter behind Rihanna‘s “Diamonds” and Beyonce‘s “Pretty Hurts.” If sobering party anthem “Chandelier” is any indication, then this album could be her most rewarding listen yet.
