Colour the Small One is the third studio album by the Australian singer & songwriter Sia Furler and was released on January 19, 2004 in United Kingdom and February 3, 2004 in the United States.

Background Edit

In 2001, Sia released her second studio album Healing Is Difficult. However, unhappy with the album's promotion and charting, she made the decision to fire her manager, leave Sony Music and sign to a new record company: Go! Beat Records. The album's first, lead single, "Don't Bring Me Down", failed to chart globally, but the following singles, "Breathe Me", "Where I Belong", and "Sunday" did.

When the second lead single "Breathe Me" was used in the series finale of the TV Show Six Feet Under (aired on August 21, 2005), the album went through a re-release on January 10, 2006 in the U.S, with an expanded version with 16 tracks, including "Broken Biscuits" and "Sea Shells".

A deluxe edition of the album was released in the UK on the digital retailer iTunes. This version included three extra tracks which were taken from "Don't Bring Me Down - EP". The tracks included were the following: "Broken Biscuits" "Lucky" and "So Bored", disregarding the track "Sea Shells" which was included on the United States' re-release.

There were two major cut tracks for this record. The first being an unfinished interlude titled "Flowers" which has a viking choir type of sound to it, the second being a sadistic ballad titled "This Shit" most possibly made for the U.S re-release of the album. It is currently unknown why these tracks were cut from the album.
