Indie pop icon Sia has announced that she will be dropping a new single on 20 May 2020. The single is titled ‘Together’, and will form part of her upcoming film, ‘Music’.
‘Together’ is a follow-up to song ‘Saved My Life’, which was co-written with Dua Lipa and released earlier this month following Sia’s performance on charity comedy livestream ‘COVID is No Joke’ on 1 May. The singer’s proceeds from ‘Saved My Life’ were donated to Americares and CORE Response charities. The one-hour concert also featured appearances from Steve Carrell, Will Ferrell, Tenacious D, Mindy Kaling, Gal Godot and others.
Sia Staying Busy
It’s been a busy couple months for Sia, who last month co-starred in a music video titled ‘Joe Exotic (Diva Cut)’, which was inspired by the Netflix docu-series Tiger King, and the #SavageChallenge that saw users parodying the show to rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s song on TikTok. The video starred Maddie Ziegler, a young dancer who has featured in many of Sia’s music videos, and celebrity stylist Tonya Brewer. In January, Sia’s song ‘Original’ was released as part of the soundtrack to ‘Dolittle’, a blockbuster starting Robert Downey Jr.
‘Music’, which was originally announced at the 2015 Venice Film Festival, is a musical and marks Sia’s debut as a director. The movie is based on a one-page story written by Sia in 2007. She also co-wrote the script with children’s book author Dallas Clayton and co-produced with Vincent Landay. The original motion picture stars Golden Globe-winner Kate Hudson (Almost Famous), Maddie Ziegler (Dance Moms) and Leslie Odom Jr (Hamilton), and according to Sia’s twitter, is scheduled for release in September 2020. The film was been previously scheduled for release in October 2019 but had to be pushed back.
New Albums Coming Soon
Fans were also delighted to hear that the ‘Chandelier’ singer has two new albums ready to be released, but that they will only come after the launch of ‘Music,’ as the artist is “focused” on her film for now. This news is as exciting as winning online Blackjack games for real money, and gives people something to really look forward to.
Sia’s last released an album (‘Every Day is Christmas’) in 2017 and went on to form a group called LSD with British-based rapper Labrinth and American DJ Diplo. They released an album, ‘Labrinth, Sia and Diplo Present… LSD’ in April 2019. Singles ‘Audio’ and ‘Thunderclouds’, charted on the ARIA Singles Chart at 91 and 69 respectively.
Born Sia Kate Isobel Furler, the singer cut her teeth in the music industry in the mid-‘90s as part of acid jazz band Crisp, and later British duo Zero 7. After several unpopular albums, she finally had her big break in 2014, when her album ‘1000 Forms of Fear’ debuted as number one on the US Billboard 200. Reportedly uncomfortable with her own fame, Sia is known for wearing a dramatic wig to cover her face. Throughout her career, Sia has received almost a dozen ARIA Awards, nine Grammy Award nominations, and an MTV Video Music Award.
