Sia Shares New Song Co-Written With Adele And Tobias Jesso Jr.

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.
