Sia – Alive Review
Alive is the first official song of Sia’s upcoming seventh studio album “This is Acting”. Sia is an Australian singer and song writer. Alive was written by Sia herself and with the collaboration of Canadian singer and song writer Tobias Jesso and Adele. The song was produced by Jesse Shatkin.
Song was originally written for Adele and about his life. Sia updated her all social media accounts and confirmed release of new song. Music video was released on September 24, 2015 but a day before 15 second song clip was uploaded on Sia’s VEVO Youtube channel. “Alive” is now available on Apple Music and iTunes. Sia’s album is projected to be released later this year.
“Alive” contains Sia’s huge voice but lacks the violent beat that is often identical with a Sia song. Instead this song feels similar to a stripped previous version. This single is about overcoming difficulty. With empowering and enthusiastic lyrics layered over pompous drums and remarkable pauses, there’s a daring tone to this song, adding to its raw influence. And, of course, Sia nails the vocals, taking everything to unexplored heights.
Sia new single will include itself to the list of her big hits but possibly won’t have the long life like some of the other songs.
