Hey music lovers,
As a longtime fan of Sia, I’ve noticed that she has never shied away from personal issues. Rather than keep it all contained and sing cutesy love songs, Sia belts out her notes to lyrics that evoke depression, pain, hurt…as well as freedom, passion, empowerment and a voice for the voiceless. In this new song, from her upcoming album This is Acting, she continues to give us all the life she can give.
Sia-Bird Set Free
The first two lines of the chorus had me like smooth butter on movie popcorn. I don’t care if I sing off key, I found myself and my melodies…yes! This song isn’t to be sung by the divas. It is to be sung by the ordinary person–you and me–who has to constantly set themselves free. God bless you, Sia for reinforcing the empowerment struggle.
Fun fact: Sia wrote this song and Alive for Adele. Who else wants to see a collab with these two songstresses? I don’t think the world can handle so much right!
Sia’s album, This is Acting comes out in 2016.
