Sia is about ready to release her follow-up to last year’s 1000 Forms of Fear. The new album, This is Acting, is set for release on January 29. Peek at the album art above. It’s a concept album of sorts: the songs that populate the album were actually written for other artists. (Let’s not forget that Ms. Furler has a very lucrative career as a multi-platinum pop songwriter for the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Carly Rae Jepsen.)
We already heard the album’s first single, “Alive”, which was originally written for Adele’s new album. Today Sia has shared another single from This is Acting. It’s called “Bird Set Free”. At this time Sia has not indicated for whom she originally wrote the song.
