Sia Covers Madonna’s “Oh Father” And Gets A Dark Diplo Remix

A week after the arrival of her playful, puppet-strewn music video for “Clap Your Hands”, Stereogum has posted a dark dub (read: pretty much unrecognizable) mix by Robyn collaborator Diplo. Not bad if you’re looking to shuffle your feet mindlessly in the club (or if you are indeed in the mood for many, many handclaps). But for the casual listener it might be a bit of a challenge. If that’s the case, perhaps a live cover of Madonna’s 1989 single “Oh Father” by Sia is more your cup of tea? Watch it below.

Sia recorded a cover of “Oh Father” for upcoming album We Are Born (out June 7). This performance of the song was from a gig at the House Of Blues in San Diego on April 19.

“Greg [Kurstin] produced the whole album. It was my usual band, and then Greg played the piano and Nick Valensi from The Strokes played the guitar,” Sia told us recently about the recording sessions for We Are Born. “We had scheduled four weeks for it but it took two-and-a-half, so that was awesome. It just came barfing out.”

Ah, barf and Madonna—what more could anyone really want, we ask?
