Australian singer-songwriter Sia is back with latest single Clap Your Hands from fourth solo effort album We Are Born, to be released June 8, 2010.  This time around she will be referencing The Pretenders, Blondie, Talking Heads and The Cure.  In contrast to her last album, 2008's Some People Have Real Problems, this new album is more on the up-tempo.

Interestingly, the album will contain a cover of Madonna's Oh Father from her Like a Prayer album.  Greg Kurstin whose most recent work on the phenomenal The Bird and The Bee's Hall & Oates tribute album, will be producing We Are Born.

As many of us know she contributed a track on Christina Aguilera's forthcoming Bionic album, which should prove worth the wait.  Sia has been selling-out club shows around Europe and she will be touring North America in tandem with the release of this new album.  To view a full tour schedule, visit her official website.

In the meantime, check out this infectious Fred Falke remix to Clap Your Hands which brings back the Disco back with that irresistible bass line and chords which say classic New Order. The guitar bits just which come to the forefront late just take this track to a new level of fantastic. Enjoy, courtesy of Sony Music:
