Most people know Sia for monster pop hits like "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart" from her 2014 album 1000 Forms of Fear, and "Breathe Me," which brought Six Feet Under to a devastating close. But long before she was crushing charts on her own, Sia was working behind the scenes writing singles for better-known artists such as Beyoncé and Rihanna.
Now Sia is putting out This Is Acting, a collection of unreleased songs she wrote for others, including this soaring pop anthem, "Alive." She originally co-wrote it for Adele, who also helped create the track with Tobias Jesso Jr. No release date has been announced for the new album.
