Published Feb 17, 2015Australian pop figure Sia may soon be swinging from the chandeliers with another set of songs, having hinted that she's already got a follow-up LP to her favourited 2014 collection 1000 Forms of Fear in the can.
Though an official ETA has not been decided upon, Sia revealed that her next set of songs will be called This Is Acting. The productive pop artist explained that the album title reflects how she had initially prepped the tracks for other artists.
"I'm calling it This Is Acting because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn't go in thinking 'this is something I would say,' she told NME. "It's more like play-acting. It's fun."
While it's unclear which performers Sia had written the songs for, previous artists to tackle her compositions include Beyoncé, Jessie J, Katy Perry, Celine Dion, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Eminem and Rihanna. Her "Wolves" collaboration with Kanye West recently premiered as well.
The interview also had Sia noting that she put together 1000 Forms of Fear to close out of a publishing deal. Turns out keeping those songs reinvigorated her solo career.
"I was planning to be a pop song writer for other artists. But my publishing deal was as an artist so I had to put one more album out. I didn't want to get famous so I kept all the songs I wanted and had a lot of fun making it."
