Following the disbandment of Crisp in 1997, Sia signed to Flavoured Records in Australia and started working on OnlySee. The album was produced by Jesse Flavell, who also helped work on the album's songwriting. The album was recorded in three weeks, had very little promotion, and failed to chart. The album sold only 1,200 copies, 1,000 in Adelaide alone. Sia, unhappy with the album's faliure, moved to London and started providing lead vocals for English downtempo group, Zero 7. She later signed to Sony Music's sub-label Dance Pool, and started working on her second studio album, Healing Is Difficult. The song "Soon" was re-recorded as "Sober and Unkissed" for Healing Is Difficult.
