Sia’s next track was originally written for Adele, but the “Chandelier” singer ended up taking it for herself — and fans will get to hear it when Sia releases the single, titled “Alive,” later this month.
According to Billboard, Sia told RTV Slovenija that she wrote the song with Adele, but the British singer rejected it “at the last minute.” Instead, it’ll reportedly appear on her next album, This Is Acting. “It’s about [Adele’s] life, so I now sing a song from [Adele’s] perspective,” Sia said in the interview.
Before Sia was applauded for her “Chandelier” success, she was best known for her work as a songwriter. Recent credits include Travie McCoy’s “Golden,”Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Boy Problems and “Making the Most of the Night,” and Jessie J’s “Flashlight.”
