New Releases Listen: Sia – “Alive” Posted by Haley • September 24, 2015

With every album, Sia has managed to reinvent herself as not only a singer but also a songwriter.

Shortly after the release of her critically-acclaimed sixth studio album, 1000 Forms Of Fear, Sia announced yet another album, This Is Acting. The album, which is already finished, is Sia’s take on songs she wrote for other artists, detailing their own lives, hence the title.

The album’s lead cut, which you’re about to listen to, is titled “Alive” and it was initially written for and with Adele, according to Sia.

Starting slow and downtempo – with a resounding focus on Sia’s intoxicating vocals – “Alive” builds into a shimmering number, one that will move you.
