Sia "Alive"

Sia 'Alive'
In addition to her upcoming film, Sister, Sia is gearing up for the release of her next album, which is called This Is Acting. The record will feature songs the pop star intended for other artists, and you can get a taste of Acting's chops with a stream of "Alive," a song co-written with and for Adele.

The song was also co-written with Tobias Jesso Jr., and features plenty of strong, staccato piano lines. Sia takes charge up front, assuredly offering in the survival anthem's opening lines: "I was born in a thunderstorm/I grew up overnight."

Flourishes of electronics and plucked, pizzicato strings are also sprinkled through the piece, further backing the solo artist's in-song determination ("I'm still breathing"). 

Exploring issues of self, love, vanity and more,  you can check out the teaser down below. A due date has yet to be delivered behind This Is Acting.
