Sia's next album, This Is Acting, is entirely composed of songs she wrote for other people. She loves easily graspable metaphors along the lines of "shine bright like a diamond;" her new track revolves around the image of "a bird set free." Drums land like rifle shots, and piano keeps a steady rolling momentum.
This Is Acting is scheduled for release on 1/29. Read about how the singer's disappearing act is changing the landscape for women in pop.
