Previously famous for her 2000 Prokofiev-sampling hit "Taken for Granted" and regular collaborations with Zero 7, Australian jazz-soul singer Sia received international exposure with her third solo album, Colour the Small One. Its lead single, "Breathe Me," was used on the series five finale of Six Feet Under, while its collaboration with Beck, "The Bully," introduced her to a slightly more alternative audience. Eschewing the R&B leanings of previous album Healing Is Difficult, Sia's hushed, intimate vocals are surrounded by acoustic folk-tinged electronica on its 11 tracks, which include the singles "Don't Bring Me Down" and "Where I Belong."
