Sia Reveals 'Alive' & Single Artwork

Alive (iTunes) is the lead single from Sia's forthcoming album This Is Acting, which is compiled of tracks originally written for others. Sia discussed in an interview that she plays a variety of characters on her new record, which explains her title.

"I'm calling it This Is Acting because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn't go in thinking 'this is something I would say'. It's more like play-acting. It's fun."

The track Alive was originally intended for Adele, now with cover art featuring Sia's grungy aesthetic wearing a black & white wig. Symbolic? Perhaps. This is only the beginning of the pop star's new releases. Who knows what's next.
