Only six months after giving birth, super mum and soul diva Christina Aguilera is back in business, toiling away on her fourth album. Motherhood seems to be working well for Christina, because she's made some pretty inspired decisions in terms of collabs! Helping to craft her new offering are electropop group Ladytron, Goldfrapp, 'Beautiful' co-writer Linda Perry and Adelaide-born starlet Sia!
Conversations started half way through last year, when Sia told SPIN.com, "I'm going to write with Christina Aguilera in mid-September for her next album. It might not work, she might not like any of the stuff I write, and it may not make the cut, but I'm pretty excited about it -- I think she's rad!"
Well turns out Christina thought the Aussie singer was pretty rad too.
Sia, who is also a nominee and performer at the Vodafone MTV Australia Awards 2009 said at the time she and Aguilera had yet to meet, but talked about the collaboration over the phone, and that, "She was like, 'I'm into you and I'm interested to step into your world,' and I was like 'Cool!'"
PerezHilton.com, who is a Sia-devotee and has posted her singles on his site in the past, reported that Australian singer has been lending her songwriting skills to Xtina. And according to a new blog Sia posted this week, things are going swimmingly.
"she is my new best friend
I arrived on a sunday night and fell into bed. Monday morning i discovered it was colder than i had anticipated, and shorts and shirt dresses weren't going to cut it. As the rain seeped into my converse chucks, I made a note to refer to them as 'sandals' in the future.
Sam (Dixon) and i spent the day discussing valentines, and trying not to buy anything at all,because 'there is a recession, you know'.
We were officially on call.
To Miss Christina Aguilera.
The week turned out 4 beautiful songs, four new mates, several new dog loves, fine dining, followed by super mario, apples to apples and a game of pool.
I lost unwaiveringly.gratefully, i'm a demon at scrabble, and i've challenged her to a tournament.
I can never be a better singer than her, but i sure can hope to get the word 'hexagons' on a triple word score, you feel me?i definitely pooped my pants when she first sang out loud in the room with us.
Little prickles stood up all over me, and marched first up, then down, then up again. When i heard 'beautiful' in david's car for the first time, i remember thinking, this is the best song i can remember hearing maybe ever, who is it?it didn't surprise me at all when he said 'christina aguilera', but it does surprise me that just a few years later, i find myself collaborating with the voice that brought that song to life.
I love her.
She's a nice person."
Mash it up ladies! We can't wait to hear it!
