"I don't even know when it's going to be released. I imagine it's going to be before April, because I'm going on tour at the end of April," Sia tells Spinner. "I imagine it has to be before then, otherwise what's the point?"
Sia laughs big and hard and clearly isn't perturbed at what some might see as a worrying delay. In fact, she's quite pleased. "I don't know if I'm supposed to say this, so I'll be vague about it, but I guess I've negotiated a nice big deal with a major record label, which is not what I normally do," she says. "Normally, I just do it all myself on my Monkey Puzzle Music label."
She says it's only a one-album deal -- is there any other kind in this day and age? -- that temporarily lifts the pressure of being self-financed and independently handling all aspects of her recording career. "It's good for me. The hold-up might actually be that I haven't signed yet," she admits with another big laugh. "We're waiting for the final negotiations before I sign on the dotted line and we can announce it and blah-di-blah, boring stuff."
Though she's confident this will be wrapped within a few weeks, Sia says she's learned from experience that making announcements too prematurely leads to greater disappointment if something falls through.
"It used to really bother me when that happened. I don't tell anyone now when I'm doing things," she says. "My friends are always, 'Why didn't you tell us?' I've got so used to blabbing about things and them not happening. I forgot to tell anyone I was going to be on 'Letterman.' I was like, 'Oh yeah, well, that happened.' You get so many false promises in this industry, so you ignore the hype until it's real."
