Sia unleashes powerful love song of upcoming album
As we all know, Sia is in full promotion of her upcoming record called This Is Acting. The album will feature songs she has written for other artists (that’s why it feels like acting to her to perform them herselves) and the release is planned for the end of January.

Sia sure knows how to strike the iron while it is hot. In september she made a glorious return with the single ‘Alive’, co-written by and for Adele.

Before the huge success of Sia’s hit ‘Chandelier’ and the accompanying album 1000 Forms of Fear Sia focused more on songwriting for other artists for a while. She co-wrote wordwide hits like Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ and Ne-Yo’s ‘Let Me Love You (Until You Love Yourself)’ just to name a few.

Sia is disco queen on new track with Giorgio Moroder
Giorgio Moroder may not ring a bell if you ask the youth of today, but this man has definitely earned his stripes in music and especially his genre: disco. The Italian producer who worked with Donna Summer on hits like the ground breaking ‘I Feel Love’, ‘Hot Stuff’ and ‘On The Radio’ had huge successes in the seventies, when disco’s popularity was huge. In 2013, he returned to the public eye with a collaboration on the Daft Punk album Random Access Memories. Now he is totally hot again, or as he himself puts it, ’74 is the new 24′. He just launched his new single ‘Deja Vu’ with vocals by one of the most exciting stars of the moment, Sia!
