We Are Born is the fifth studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Sia. It was released on June 18, 2010. The album is more upbeat than her previous work, which she partly attributes to her relationship with JD Samson as well as her childhood influences Cyndi Lauper and Madonna. The album was produced by Greg Kurstin and features guitar from The Strokes' guitarist Nick Valensi.
The album's first single, "You've Changed" was released in December 2009 and the lead single, "Clap Your Hands", in April 2010.We Are Born debuted at number 2 on the Australian Albums Chart and was Sia's first top 10 release in her home country. The album won Best Pop Release and Best Independent Release at the 2010 ARIA Music Awards. The album received Gold accreditation in the Australian ARIA charts in 2011.
We Are Born was received with generally favorable reviews with a score of 68 at Metacritic based on 14 reviews. Entertainment Weekly said: "On We Are Born the chanteuse explores more caffeinated avenues...It's party music with a heart." Slant Magazine said: "While We Are Born may not be as immediate or distinctive a statement as its predecessor, there's ultimately very little about it that doesn't work."
The album was nominated for a J Award on 26 July 2010.
At the 2010 ARIA Music Awards the album was nominated for Album of the Year, Best Pop Release and Best Independent Release. "Clap Your Hands" was nominated for Single of the Year. Kris Moyes won best video for Sia's video for "Clap Your Hands".
