Sia's new album This Is Acting is made up entirely of songs originally written for other pop stars. The latest track to emerge from the album—due January 29—is "Cheap Thrills," initially pitched for Rihanna's eternally forthcoming new album ANTI. "Cheap Thrills" is a tropical house-inflected pop belter about yearning for the dancefloor on a Saturday night.


Sia is a songwriting machine, and was recently revealed to have written the song "Hologram (Smoke & Mirrors)" for Amazon Prime show Transparent.
