Colour the Small One is a 2004 album by Australian singer Sia. It is her third solo studio album.

It was re-released 10 January 2006 in the United States, after the track "Breathe Me" became popular on alternative radio, following its feature as the closing song in the series finale of the HBO drama Six Feet Under.[5]

In the UK, the proper first single "Breathe Me" (second release after "Don't Bring Me Down") reached a respectable #71 on the charts in May 2004, whilst the third single "Where I Belong" failed to make any impact. The fourth and final single "Numb" went largely unnoticed.

When it was released in 2004, "Breathe Me" was the first single across most of the world, while "Don't Bring Me Down" was the second.

In promotion of the album, Go Beat produced a making-of video which can be found on YouTube.[1][2]

Due to a re-surfacing of popularity with "Breathe Me" in the United States, it was re-released in the U.S. "Breathe Me" gained popularity on alternative rock and alternative adult radio stations in early and mid-spring.

In 2007, "Breathe Me" was used in television commercials for Cooper University Hospital of South New Jersey, USA.

In April 2008, "Breathe Me" was featured on the German soap opera, Verbotene Liebe when gay supercouple Christian Mann and Oliver Sabel embraced as lovers for the first time on German television. Also, in October 2008, whilst at the Tokyo Game Show Ubisoft revealed a trailer for their upcoming video-game Prince of Persia which used the track "Breathe Me".

Many of the commercials on NBC for the 2008 Summer Olympics featured clips of "Breathe Me" and the song was also used for Coca-Cola commercials during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

"Numb" was featured on an episode of Nip/Tuck (Season 3, Episode #33 "Rhea Reynolds"), played at the close of the episode.

It is also regularly used in the British TV series Holby City and has been played in the popular British soap Hollyoaks several times. It has also been used in an episode of The Hills.

"Sunday" was the second single in the United States.
