Adele might be dominating November, but today Sia announced that she’ll be returning in 2016 to break/heal our hearts even further. Her new album, This Is Acting, will be out 1/29 according to this new Instagram account set up solely to announce the release. The lead single is called “Alive” and was co-written with Tobias Jesso Jr. and Adele for 25, but didn’t actually make it onto Adele’s album.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Sia also noted that this record has songs that were written for Beyonce and Rihanna, that she’s working with FKA twigs, and that another one of her songs did make it onto Adele’s new album after all. All of the songs on This Is Acting were written for other people, or from other people’s perspectives — hence the title. Listen to “Alive” below.
