1000 Forms of Fear

Famously shy, Aussie singer-songwriter Sia Furler (known as just Sia) doesn't appear anywhere in her videos or album artwork for her latest album 1000 Forms of Fear. After spending years penning hits for other major artists, she's returned to the recording studio, but keeps herself as far out of the limelight as possible (while still being a major Billboard success). Even when performing live she sings with her back to the crowd, or with her wig covering her face! Bet you didn't know that she wrote Beyoncé' s "Pretty Hurts," "Diamonds" by Rihanna and even David Guetta's "Titanium! She's a seriously talented songwriter with killer vocals, so it's no surprise that 1000 Forms of Fear will just about steal your heart on every single track.

The hit single "Chandelier" off the album could easily be labeled the song of the year, taking listeners on an emotional rollercoaster, going from dark to joyous. The rest of the album delivers the same kind of incredible feeling. Hunger Games fans will recognize the track "Elastic Heart" from the Catching Fire Soundtrack, which is almost as powerful as "Chandelier." Songs like "Burn the Pages" and "Big Girls Cry" are a little softer, but have a lot of heart, and every song, even the dark ones, have a pop catchiness to them. We predict other artists will be busting out songs from this album as cover tunes for the next year. 1000 Forms of Fear is more like 12 Timeless Tunes!
