Sia – Alive (New Music)
The Australian singer-songwriter with the midas touch, Sia, returns with her brand new single “Alive”.
“Alive” was written by Sia herself, Adele (who it was originally intended for), Tobias Jesso, Jr. and produced by Jesse Shatkin. The massive pop track is a rumbling thunderstorm of emotion with booming drums and a melodramatic chorus where Sia’s soaring vocals make for a memorable performance not unlike “Chandelier”. Just wow at her voice.
The new track is the first official taste of Sia’s upcoming seventh studio album “This Is Acting” and was originally written for Adele’s new album but subsequently ended up on Sia’s own which is more fitting considering the theatrical style of the song.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure is a fitting description for her upcoming album as she expressed in a recent interview “I’m calling it ‘This Is Acting’ because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn’t go into it thinking, ‘This is something I would say’. It’s more like play-acting. It’s fun”.
“Alive” is the first single from “This Is Acting” due out later this year via RCA Records. Listen to Sia on the explosive track below:
