BLURT will be hosting a
sneak preview of the DVD trailer next week.

Sia Furler – known to music fans as simply “Sia” – is no
longer just a sensual, jazzy voice for Britain’s Zero 7, and she’s
definitely no longer just another YouTube upstart. Since the release in January
2008 of her third album some people have
REAL problems the Australian-born singer-songwriter has been a consistent
concert draw on both sides of the Atlantic,
selling out shows and amassing a near-rabid fanbase drawn to her sleek sounds. She
also went down a storm at last year’s Coachella.
Arriving May 19 from Monkey Puzzle/Concord will be further
proof of the young lady’s staying power: Sia’s first concert video, titled
smartly enough TV Is My Parent. It
was recorded September 12, 2007 in NYC at the Hiro Ballroom (raise your hands
if you were there), showcasing material from some people… as well as older favorites culled from her back
catalog as well as Zero 7’s. Rounding out the DVD is behind the scenes footage
from her 2008 tour plus the four official videos shot for some people….
Next week, on Wednesday, April 22, BLURT will be proud to
host the world premiere of Sia’s DVD trailer, so keep your eyes peeled. The
images accompanying this news piece are screenshots taken from the video.
